Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm

Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm is located approximately 28km from Blakeney Point on the North Norfolk Coast, and extends over approximately 75km2. At the time of its construction, Race Bank was one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Royal HaskoningDHV was commissioned in the post-consent period in order to carry out a range of environmental assessments prior to installation works being carried out and also to help oversee the installation works.

Norfolk Boreas Offshore Wind Farm

Norfolk Boreas is one of the biggest Round 3 offshore wind projects, both in terms of its size and complexity. The development area covers 725km2 and is approximately 73km from the Norfolk coast at its nearest point. The proposed wind farm will have an export capacity of 1.8GW of renewable electricity, which would meet the electricity requirements for nearly two million UK households.

Dogger Bank Offshore Wind Farm

Working with the development consortium Forewind, Royal HaskoningDHV successfully achieved consenting success for four offshore wind farms in the Dogger Bank Zone in 2015. At the time, this was the largest number of projects to be awarded consent within a similar timeframe and was also potentially the largest offshore wind project in the world. Subsequently, a joint venture between SSE and Equinor has formed to take forward three of the offshore wind farms, collectively referred to as the Dogger Bank Wind Farms, with a capacity of up to 1.2GW each (3.6GW combined), accounting for approximately 4% of the UK’s electricity needs. The projects are far from shore, which represents a logistical challenge on many levels including the planning of environmental surveys, as well as the construction works themselves.

Norfolk Vanguard Offshore Wind Farm

Norfolk Vanguard is a proposed 1.8GW Offshore Wind Farm in the southern North Sea, 47km from the coast. The project will meet the electricity requirements for around 1.3 million UK households. Norfolk Vanguard is classed as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) and consequently, Vattenfall needed to apply for a Development Consent Order (DCO). Vattenfall commissioned Royal HaskoningDHV’s (RHDHV’s) offshore wind team to lead the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) to enable the delivery of the Environmental Statement (ES) and support the DCO application
