Sound of Islay application takes another step forward

IET welcomes the further progress in the Sound of Islay project by the request to Scottish Ministers that amended consent for the development be deemed to be granted.

Scottish Power Renewables (SPR) recently applied to Scottish Ministers for consent to construct an offshore demonstration tidal energy array in the Sound of Islay and associated onshore generating station with an installed capacity of 10 MW.  The purpose of this application is to amend the consent awarded to SPR by Scottish Ministers in March 2011 and requests that planning permission for the associated onshore development is deemed to be granted.

A copy of the application and related documentation is available for inspection in the IET offices and at the Argyll and Bute Council offices on Jamieson Street in Bowmore.

Anyone wishing to make representations regarding this application should do so by email to or by post to The Scottish Government, Marine Scotland Licensing Operations Team, Marine Laboratory, 375 Victoria Road, Aberdeen AB11 9DB.
