OrbisEnergy tenant, ScottishPower Renewables has closed the Phase 4 Consultation on the proposed East Anglia ONE North and East Anglia TWO offshore wind farms.
This consultation phase was based on a draft Environmental Statement setting out the proposed infrastructure, its potential impacts and taking into account the environmental, social and economic effects and the mitigation measures proposed.
ScottishPower Renewables is currently in the process of collating and analysing all responses to inform the development and refinement of the proposals.
The developer plans to submit Development Consent Applications (DCOs) for the two projects in October 2019.
Construction is expected to start in early 2024 and the wind farms are expected to be operational by mid-2027.
The East Anglia TWO project is located some 31km from Lowestoft and covers an area of 255km2. Initial studies have indicated a potential generating capacity of up to 900MW.
East Anglia ONE North could have a capacity of up to 800MW and is located approximately 36km off the coast, covering an area of 209km2.
