Crown Estate Scotland’s data relating to offshore assets are available to the public for the first time.

It covers infrastructure projects and undersea cabling and can be used by a range of organisations such as oil and gas firms and universities.

The data reveals the geographical extent and information for all of Crown Estate Scotland’s offshore legal agreements.

That includes the Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm, currently under construction in the Moray Firth and the Hywind floating wind farm.

John Roberston, Senior Energy Manager at Crown Estate Scotland said: “As a land and asset manager, Crown Estate Scotland has a responsibility to maintain authoritative records about the status and change on the land and seabed we manage.

“With a number of both large scale and smaller projects already in Scottish waters, this will give companies working in the sector the chance to scope out other opportunities to work with Crown Estate Scotland and our partners.”
