On 11th February 2022, following a period of redermination, the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy awarded a Development Consent Order (DCO) to Norfolk Vanguard Offshore Wind Farm. After also being awarded consent for Norfolk Boreas in December 2021, we can now move forward, prepare for construction and unlock the huge potential of both Norfolk Zone projects. The Secretary of State's decision letter and the DCO can be found in the documents section below.
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.
With consent now granted work will begin to engage with the supply chain to prepare for construction, which is expected to begin in 2023.
