Wind Energy – Norfolk
Vattenfall will increase the capacity for its Norfolk Offshore Wind Zone in the southern UK North Sea to more than 4.2 GW.
Crucially, this will take place with no extra impact for local residents, with its construction taking place within existing plans.
The extra power will ensure supplies to about 4.6 million households, making this one of the world’s largest offshore wind zones. All added construction will be performed around existing facilities.
Features of the development include use of more powerful turbines and a coordinated grid connection.
The windfarms in the Norfolk Zone are designed to deliver low cost, renewable electricity to homes and businesses across the UK, using more powerful turbines and world-leading design including a coordinated grid connection.
