Moray East is applying for ‘rolling’ 500 metre (m) safety zones around each structure (Wind Turbine Generator or Offshore Substation Platform) and/or their foundations whilst construction works are in progress (as indicated by the presence of a construction vessel).

Full details are available in the safety zone application document (download links / access details provided below), noting that no amendments to the other types of safety zones previously applied for and subsequently granted are included within the new application.
The safety zone application is available to download on the Moray East website ([https://www.morayeast.com/current-works/offshore-works])/ published on the Marine Scotland website http://marine.gov.scot/ml/safety-zonesmoray-east-offshore-wind-farm-outer-moray-firth.
