1 Ms Megan Richardson Aquamarine Power Ltd. Elder House 24 Elder Street Edinburgh EH1 3DX 14 February 2012 Dear Ms. Richardson, CONSENT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION OF AN OFFSHORE DEMONSTRATOR WAVE ENERGY CONVERTOR ARRAY AT THE EUROPEAN MARINE ENERGY CENTRE (EMEC), BILLIA CROO, ORKNEY. Application I refer to the application made by Aquamarine Power Ltd. ( the Company ), dated 17 th June 2011 for: (i) consent under section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 ( the Electricity Act ) for construction and operation of an extension to the Wave Energy Convertor (WEC) at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), Billia Croo, Orkney, bringing the generation capacity up to a total of 2.4 MW. The consent is for construction of a further two WECs and for operation of the full three WECs for a maximum of 20 years. Description and background The Company is proposing to construct and operate a further two demonstrator wave energy convertors at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), Billia Croo, Orkney. The scheme will then generate up to 2.4 MW of power from the sea and will involve the construction and operation of the following: Two additional Oyster wave energy convertor devices (making three in total) Interconnecting pipelines Consultation In accordance with statutory requirements, advertisements of the application had to be placed in the local and national press. Ministers note that these requirements have been met. Under Schedule 8 to the Electricity Act, the relevant planning authority is required to be notified in respect of a section 36 consent application and notification was sent to Orkney Island Council as the nearest onshore Planning Authority, as well as to Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) amongst others. 1

2 Orkney Island Council as the nearest onshore Planning Authority support the application subject to environmental monitoring taking place. This monitoring will be in the Environmental Monitoring and Mitigation Plan. Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) did not object to the application however raised concerns surrounding potential impacts on birds and marine mammals, as well as effects of removing kelp from the area. SNH recommended that in any consent, an appropriate, detailed and agreed Environmental Monitoring and Mitigation Plan be put in place to minimise any potential impacts. SNH advised that the proposal could have an adverse effect on seabirds from Special Protection Areas in the vicinity and therefore an Appropriate Assessment was undertaken which concluded that no adverse impacts would occur as a result of the development on the concerned species. SNH consider that if appropriate mitigation measures are undertaken then the proposal shall not adversely affect the Favourable Conservation Status of the relevant species. If a European Protected Species Licence is required from the Scottish Ministers, it should be applied for in a separate application. The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) had no objections to the proposed development but recommended that the mitigation measures outlined in the Environmental Statement be implemented. Scottish Fishermen s Federation (through the Orkney Fisheries Association) did not object, however they did raise some concerns. OFA advised that more frequent maintenance of the devices be carried out. OFA also commented that the project could have an impact on the spawning grounds of crabs and fish species with possible implications for the recruitment to the harvestable adult population. OFA advised that the Company set up a bond or compensation fund which could compensate fishermen for lost gear or damage to boats as a result of the devices. This is however not appropriate as the devices will be located within the EMEC test facility and properly marked in accordance with IALA Recommendation They also requested the design of artificial habitats for lobsters should be included where rock armouring was used. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) made no objection to the proposal subject to appropriate monitoring of seabirds and marine mammals through the development and production stages. This monitoring will be in the Environmental Monitoring and Mitigation Plan Transport Scotland made no objection to the application. Historic Scotland made no objection to the application confirming there will be no significant adverse impacts on the historic environment features within their statutory remit. Marine Coastguard Agency (MCA) made no objection to the application subject to conditions being applied to ensure the Company adequately addressed all the MCA recommendations in the current Offshore Renewable Energy Installations Guidance on UK Navigational Practice, Safety and Emergency Response Issues and any annexes that may be appropriate. In particular the MCA recommended the creation of an Emergency Response Cooperation Plan (ERCoP). Further consultation between the company and the MCA has alleviated the need to condition this in the consent. The Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) made no objection to the application subject to conditions relating to Navigational safety. One condition recommended by the NLB is contained within the attached S36 consent, the others are deemed more suitable for the Marine Licence and are contained there. 2

3 Other responses One public representation was received during the consultation. The representation raised concerns surrounding the visual impact of the device being in a National Scenic Area. Scottish Ministers are content that advice from SNH and Orkney Island Council adequately cover visual impacts. Scottish Ministers are also content the application was appropriately advertised and that the Environmental Statement contained sufficient environmental information to allow a determination to be made. Environmental Matters Scottish Ministers have considered the environmental information contained in the Environmental Statement provided with the application and consider that the Company has had due regard to the desirability of preserving natural beauty, of conserving flora, fauna and geological or physiographical features of special interest and of protecting sites, buildings and objects of architectural, historic or archaeological interest, in accordance with paragraph 3(2)(a) of Schedule 9 to the Electricity Act. Also, in accordance with paragraph 3(2)(b) of Schedule 9, the Scottish Ministers have had regard to the extent to which the Company has complied with its duty to do what it reasonably can to mitigate any effect which the proposals would have on the natural beauty of the countryside or on any such flora, fauna, features, sites, buildings or objects. Decommissioning The Company should submitted to Ministers a decommissioning programme, in compliance with a notice served upon the Company by the Secretary of State pursuant to section 105(2) of the Energy Act The Company s Case Important criteria which you considered in selection of the demonstrator wave energy convertor site included economic viability, grid availability and ecological sensitivity You have developed the proposed design to minimise negative environmental effects whilst maintaining engineering and financial viability. The Scottish Ministers Consideration In assessing the application for the demonstrator Wave Energy Convertor Array, Scottish Ministers are obliged to protect the surrounding environment and have stipulated that an Environmental Monitoring and Mitigation Plan (EMMP) must be produced by the Company for the written approval of Scottish Ministers for the development. The EMMP will incorporate all monitoring and mitigation measures required associated with marine mammals, birds, basking sharks, shellfish and seals. The EMMP will be a live document that will be reviewed and updated as data from the demonstrator array is analysed. This will ensure that the monitoring and mitigation is robust and will not cause a detrimental impact on the environment. The EMMP will be signed off by Marine Scotland following consultation with SNH, the Sea Mammals Research Unit and any other ecological, or such other, advisors required at the discretion of Scottish Ministers. As part of your commitment to the development of alternative renewable energy technology you have identified the Billia Croo site to demonstrate a novel design of a wave energy convertor in a more accessible site. It is an opportunity to obtain a better understanding of the Oyster device and how it interacts in an array configuration. The data gathered from the site will be essential for both regulators and consultees to understand the interactions of species and habitats with the devices. This information can then be used to help refine the design for potential use in future developments. 3

4 Scottish Ministers are of the opinion that no works shall start on the development until a Construction Method Statement (CMS) has been submitted to and approved in writing by Marine Scotland in consultation with SNH and SEPA. The CMS shall be complied with and implemented as part of the proposed development unless revised to secure an equivalent or higher standard of protection/restoration with the prior written consent of Marine Scotland. Scottish Ministers have obtained advice on matters relating to protection of the environment through the Marine (Scotland) Act The Marine Licence is ready to be issued to you once the Section 36 Consent has been granted. Public Local Inquiry Paragraph 3(2) of Schedule 8 to the Electricity Act requires Scottish Ministers to consider all the objections they have received in pursuance of the Electricity (Applications for Consent) Regulations 1990 ( the 1990 Regulations ), together with all other material considerations, with a view to determining whether a public local inquiry (PLI) should be held and, if they think it appropriate to do so, shall cause a PLI to be held. In terms of paragraph 7A of Schedule 8 to the Act if the Planning Authority made a valid objection and did not withdraw it, the Scottish Ministers must convene a PLI, which must be confined to so much of the application as relates to land within the area of the authority whom the objection was made (except in so far as they direct otherwise). Orkney Island Council did not object to the proposal, even if they did a PLI is not a statutory requirement in this case due to the oyster being sited outwith its jurisdiction. In reaching the decision not to cause a PLI to be held, Scottish Ministers are content that adequate opportunity was afforded for public representation and that those with a right to make representations could have their representation properly taken into account. The Scottish Ministers have had regard to all other material considerations, and acknowledge that it would not be appropriate for a PLI to be held. Decision Scottish Ministers are content that they have had access to sufficient information to assess the likely environmental impact of the project to enable them to make a determination on the application. In reaching their decision, the Scottish Ministers have considered fully and carefully the application, the accompanying Environmental Statement, the representations made by statutory bodies in accordance with the Electricity (Applications for Consent) Regulations 1990 and the Electricity Works (Environmental Impact Assessment) (Scotland) Regulations 2000, as amended, as well as the responses received from consultees throughout the consultation process. The 2.4 MW project at Billia Croo, Orkney will provide sufficient power for approximately 1100 houses per annum during its 20 year testing. This increase in the amount of renewable energy produced in Scotland is entirely consistent with the Scottish Government s policy on the promotion of renewable energy and its target to meet 100% of demand for Scotland s electricity to be met from renewable sources by Determination Subject to the conditions set out in Annex 2, Scottish Ministers grant consent under section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 for construction and operation of the Wave Energy Convertor Array in Orkney waters as described in Annex 1. 4

5 In accordance with the Electricity Works (Environmental Impact Assessment) (Scotland) Regulations 2000, as amended, you must publicise this determination for two successive weeks in the Edinburgh Gazette and one or more newspapers circulating in the locality in which the land and seabed to which the application relates is situated. The Scottish Ministers decision is final, subject to the right of any person with title and interest to apply to the Court of Session for judicial review. Judicial review is the mechanism by which the Court of Session supervises the exercise of administrative functions, including how the Scottish Ministers exercise their statutory functions to determine applications for consent, the rules relating to the judicial review process can be found on the website of the Scottish Courts the relevant Chapter is Chapter 58: Your local Citizens Advice Bureau or your solicitor will be able to advise you about the applicable procedures. Yours sincerely James McKie Leader Licensing Operations Team Marine Planning and Policy Division Marine Scotland Authorised by the Scottish Ministers to sign in that behalf 5
