East Anglia THREE Application Reaches BEIS Desk

On 28 March, the UK Planning Inspectorate issued a report of recommendation on the East Anglia THREE offshore wind farm to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), Greg Clark, who now has three months to issue a decision.

OrbisEnergy tenant, ScottishPower Renewables, the UK arm of Spanish Iberdrola, submitted the application for an order granting development consent for the 1.2GW East Anglia THREE in November 2015, and the application was accepted for examination the following month. The Planning Inspectorate completed the examination in December 2016.

The offshore wind farm will comprise up to 172 wind turbines installed across an area of 305km² off the coast of Suffolk in the southern North Sea.

Subject to the government’s approval, it is anticipated that onshore construction could begin in 2021, with offshore work starting in 2022 and first power generation achieved in 2023.

ScottishPower Renewables is currently developing the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm, a GBP 2 billion project comprising 102 turbines with a combined capacity of 714MW.
