LRS were appointed to provide a full referencing service to support a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) for the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm.
This involved a 42KM cable route located 32KM off the coast of Cromer in North Norfolk. Since its completion in late 2017, the 67 wind turbine farm has been producing enough green, clean energy to power more than 410,000 homes in the UK.
Wind power is expected to continue to increase year on year, with 18% of UK electricity generated by wind power in 2018.
The UK is one of the best locations for wind power in the world, with the Government committing to 30GW of installed offshore capacity by 2030.
A constantly growing industry
The offshore wind industry is constantly developing larger wind farms further away from shore. As the capacity of turbines have increased, the electrical infrastructure has had to adapt to accommodate requirements.
The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm is located in water which is between 18-25m deep on a 55 km² site. The electricity it generates is bought to shore, via a seabed cable, at Weybourne Hope. From there an underground cable carries this electricity to Necton, Norfolk where a purpose build substation enables electricity to be transmitted into the National Grid.
LRS help clients across all sectors find solutions to meet the rising demand for power and deliver future energy schemes to help create a sustainable world.
Our experienced team is fully committed to offering a flexible approach to each project, which can be adapted to each project’s unique brief.
