Description

Brims Tidal Array Limited (BTAL) is proposing to develop a tidal array, known as the Brims Tidal Array Project (the Project), of up to 200 megawatts (MW) of generating capacity within the Pentland Firth.
The key driver for the Project is the development of renewable sources of energy, which is critical for combatting global climate change, and which contributes to improved energy sustainability and security of supply in Scotland.
This document is the Environmental Statement (ES) for the Project and focuses on the offshore aspects of the Project.
