Offshore wind farm

Robin Rigg East and West

Robin Rigg East and Robin Rigg West are the first commercial offshore wind farms in Scottish waters (together known as Robin Rigg). These wind farms began full generation in April 2010 and combined should provide enough electricity to power approximately 117,000 homes and offset around 230,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.

Reports on the benefit of offshore wind to the UK industry

A report based on the Robin Rigg East and West offshore wind farms in the Solway Firth highlights that 32% of the development, manufacture and construction for the site was carried out by UK-based business.

A recent report carried out highlights that between 2010 and 2011 the UK content of the Operations and maintenance expenditure at Robin Rigg was 86%. A total of 34 per cent was local to the project in Cumbria. Regionally, NW England and Scotland together captured 45 per cent of expenditure.

Being part of the community

By working together with the community, the Robin Rigg wind farms have helped local people share the benefits of renewable energy.

A £1m community fund with Dumfries & Galloway and Cumbria was launched in 2009 and this has already brought improvements in community facilities and projects to reduce environmental impacts locally.
