The assembly and fit-out of the offshore substation platform and jacket foundation for the 1.1 GW Inch Cape offshore wind farm are currently underway at the Smulders yard in Wallsend, Newcastle, UK. A consortium of Siemens Energy and Iemants, a Smulders subsidiary, is responsible for delivering the offshore substation for the Scottish project, located 15 kilometres off the Angus coast.

Inch Cape is owned by Inch Cape Offshore Wind Limited, a joint venture by Red Rock Power and ESB.
