Danish power company Ørsted has unveiled new plans for the proposed Hornsea Project Three offshore windfarm after receiving feedback at various consultation events.

The new windfarm will join Ørsted’s Hornsea Project One and Hornsea Project Two. Details of its location have been revealed alongside information about a planned 80m onshore cable route.

The turbines will be installed over a 120km area of the north Norfolk coast. It is expected to produce enough energy to fulfil the electricity needs of more than two million homes in the UK.

“The views of local communities and stakeholders are of great importance to us, and we have taken these into account to reduce or remove areas of concern.”

Ørsted intends to minimise the construction programme to two phases by reducing onshore activity.

Project feedback was obtained through one-to-one meetings and briefings with statutory bodies and other interested parties.

Ørsted project development manager Stuart Livesey said: “We’re delighted that we’ve been able to incorporate so much of the feedback received into the final design. The views of local communities and stakeholders are of great importance to us, and we have taken these into account to reduce or remove areas of concern.

“The planning process is iterative, so we initially presented a wide search area and then have relied on local knowledge, environmental assessments and information from local authorities and other statutory bodies, landowners and members of the local community to refine the design.

“Hornsea Project Three is a much-needed infrastructure project that could supply clean energy to well over two million homes in the UK.

“Due to the scale of the project we had initially prepared to construct the project in three phases, however, I am really pleased to say that we have taken on board the feedback and been able to reduce this to two phases.”
