SSE and RWE to expand wind operations

SSE Renewables and RWE Renewables have joined forces to develop an extension adjacent to the operational 504MW Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm, located more than 20Km off the UK coast in the southern North Sea.

Both companies currently own the existing wind farm, having established an equal joint venture company and signed an Agreement for Lease with The Crown Estate, managers of the seabed. The project has been named North Falls Offshore Wind Farm, after the North Falls sandbank located at the southern tip of the proposed site of the wind farm.

The North Falls Offshore Wind Farm will comprise of a number of wind turbines on fixed foundations, plus dedicated offshore and onshore electrical infrastructure. The extension project can now begin its development activity including comprehensive onshore and offshore surveys and studies to inform the Environmental Assessment. During the coming three years, work will also include engineering design, stakeholder consultation and community engagement before the Development Consent Order application is submitted to the Planning Inspectorate.
