On Wednesday 1st July 2020 the Secretary of State for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy granted development consent for Vattenfall's application to build Norfolk Vanguard Offshore Wind Farm. Find out more here.
Located more than 47km from the Norfolk coast and with an installed capacity of 1.8GW, Norfolk Vanguard will provide the equivalent electricity needs of 1.95 million UK homes per year, while saving 3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. The project will help to cement and maintain East Anglia as a UK renewable energy powerhouse, and put the region at the heart of our national transition to a low-carbon economy, while supporting hundreds of local jobs and continuing to sponsor local and regional skills initiatives.
After extensive consultation and engagement with stakeholders, local communities and supply chain, Vattenfall submitted an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) in June 2018. The Examination phase began in December 2018, concluded in June 2019, and the DCO has now been granted by the Secretary of State.
We now move to a new phase of activity for Norfolk Vanguard. Updates and additional information will be provided on this website and via the new e-news system. To register for e-news updates please fill out this form .
