Vattenfall in Norfolk

Vattenfall is planning two offshore wind farms off the coast of Norfolk that could power more than 3.9 million UK homes. Norfolk Vanguard has been granted consent and Norfolk Boreas is in the Examination phase.

3.9 million. That's how many homes we expect Norfolk Vanguard and Boreas to power. That number has increased by 1.3mn from early predictions. Stronger winds, further out to sea, taller turbines, longer blades, cutting edge innovation - advancing technology and environmental understanding all play their part. We can capture and convert more wind energy at lower cost than ever before.

Assuming a load factor of 47.3%.
