Norfolk Boreas Offshore Wind Farm

On 10th December 2021 the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy awarded a Development Consent Order (DCO) to Norfolk Boreas Offshore Wind Farm. We can now move forward, prepare for construction and unlock the huge potential of this exciting project. The Secretary of State's decision letter can be found in the documents section below.

Norfolk Boreas has been consented and will be built off the coast of Norfolk


The Norfolk Boreas Wind Farm, which could produce enough electricity to power almost 2 million UK homes, will also bring significant community and skills investment directly into Norfolk. With consent now granted work will begin to engage with the supply chain to prepare for construction, which is expected to begin in 2023, and await an update on the consent decision for sister project Norfolk Vanguard.
