Vanguard to the fore on wind farm events

Vattenfall announces March public engagement days for major offshore wind farm

Vattenfall, the Swedish energy company, has confirmed this week dates for its next round of public engagement days.

The developer of the Norfolk Vanguard and Norfolk Boreas offshore wind farms will reveal feedback from an extensive engagement campaign last autumn and show latest thinking on the projects. Vattenfall is to hold nine events on the Norfolk coast and in north Norfolk.

Vattenfall’s Project Manager for Norfolk Vanguard, Ruari Lean, said: “Me and my team are looking forward to talking about Norfolk Vanguard in March with people interested in the benefits of the project and of course any concerns they may have.

“So far the feedback we have received has been enormously helpful and I’m confident that stakeholders will see we have listened and that we are doing our upmost to minimise impact of both the offshore and onshore parts of the wind farm.”

In October 2016, Vattenfall revealed early plans for the 1.8GW Norfolk Vanguard. Norfolk Vanguard could feature up to 180 wind turbines more than 47km from the Norfolk coastline. The offshore power cable would come ashore between Becton and Eccles-on-Sea and then run 60km to a substation in the Necton area. The planning process for Norfolk Boreas offshore wind farm is due to start later this year.
