Vattenfall gets planning consent for offshore wind farm

13 Dec 2021

Vattenfall has secured planning consent for the 1.8GW Norfolk Boreas offshore wind farm in the North Sea by the British government.

The facility will be able to generate enough clean energy to power approximately 2m British homes while offsetting 3m tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.

It is part of the company's proposed "Norfolk Zone", which is a portfolio of wind assets located offshore from Norfolk.

The Norfolk Boreas offshore wind farm will be developed in the Norfolk Zone together with the Norfolk Vanguard project, which is awaiting its own consent decision.

The Norfolk Zone has 3.6GW of installed capacity and contributes to the industry's objective of creating 70,000 jobs by 2026.

The wind farm will cover an area of ​​1,307km² and will be equipped with approximately 180 to 312 wind turbines.
