Covid-19 triggers delays in UK offshore wind decisions

By JP Casey

Uncertainty arising from the Covid-19 pandemic has caused delays in the UK’s offshore wind industry, with decisions on development at two projects in British waters now pushed back until July.

The delays, at Ørsted’s Hornsea Three windfarm and Vattenfall’s Norfolk Vanguard project, are the latest to affect the country’s offshore wind sector. A final decision on construction at the Hornsea Three project was originally expected last October, but was repeatedly pushed back due to concerns over the project’s potential disruption of local wildlife. Meanwhile, a second Vattenfall project, the Norfolk Boreas windfarm, has already seen its deadline for a construction decision moved from May to October.
