THE ELECTRICITY (OFFSHORE GENERATING STATIONS) (SAFETY ZONES) (APPLICATION PROCEDURES
AND CONTROL OF ACCESS) REGULATIONS 2007 – STATUTORY INSTRUMENT 2007 NO 1948

Notice is hereby given that Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Limited (Company No SC278869) (registered offices at 3rd Floor,
The Tun Building, 4 Jackson’s Entry, Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, Scotland, EH8 8PJ) has applied for consent from Marine
Scotland as set out in the Energy Act 2004 and the Electricity (Offshore Generating Stations) (Safety Zones) (Application
Procedures and Control of Access) Regulations 2007 (SI No 2007/1948) for safety zones as follows, for the previously
consented Offshore Renewable Energy Installation known as the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre, during
construction and major maintenance phases.

The following safety zones are being applied for:

• During the construction phase a programme of 500 metre (m) ‘rolling’ safety zones around the location of each wind
turbine and/or its substructures and foundations during certain construction activities (as identified by a risk
assessment).

• Pre-commissioning 50 m safety zones surrounding each wind turbine and/or its substructures and foundations whilst
work is not ongoing.

• During the operational phase, a 500 m safety zone around all ‘major maintenance’ being undertaken on any wind
turbine and/or its substructures (as identified by risk assessment). Major maintenance is defined as any activity
involving large vessels (such as jack-up barges or heavy lift vessels). No safety zones are planned during normal
operations of the wind farm.

The precise start date and co-ordinates of the safety zones will be detailed in the Notice to Mariners prior to their
implementation.

The safety zone scheme will be available for download from Marine Scotland at http://www.gov.scot/Topics/marine/Licensing/

Offshore Wind Farm Ltd at their registered address, given above. Any person wishing to make representations to the

Fair Processing Notice

The Marine Scotland Licensing Operations Team process applications for safety zones around offshore renewable energy

Scottish Ministers in support of or objecting to these applications. Should the Scottish Ministers call a Public Local Inquiry
