Crown Estate Scotland Makes Offshore Data Available to Public

Crown Estate Scotland now has spatial data relating to the organisation’s offshore assets freely available on its website for the first time.

The data covers infrastructure projects and undersea cabling and can be used by a range of organisations from oil and gas companies to consultancies and educational institutes.

The data reveals the geographic extent and some attribute information for all the organisation’s offshore legal agreements, including Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm, currently under construction in the Moray Firth, and the Hywind project, the world’s first floating wind farm which was recently installed off the north east of Scotland.

An interactive map, showing the organisation’s live agreements by sector ranging from aquaculture sites to various coastal activities, is also available on their website. Visitors to the site can pan across Scotland to view the variety of activities in each locale.

John Robertson, 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 of the land and seabed we manage. We also want to work openly and transparently.

“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.”

Crown Estate Scotland, which was formed in April 2017, is responsible for around half the foreshore around Scotland, leasing of virtually all seabed out to 12 nautical miles and the right to offshore renewable energy and gas and carbon storage out to 200 nautical miles.
