Dogger Bank Consent Confirms Royal HaskoningDHV’s Success
Following the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change’s decision to grant consent to Dogger Bank Creyke Beck, Royal HaskoningDHV announced that it has now provided key input to the environmental impact assessment process for over 5.5GW of successful offshore wind farm applications in the UK, with more to come.
Royal HaskoningDHV has worked on the Dogger Bank projects since 2008 and was involved in the successful bid that saw the development rights awarded to Forewind. The company has since been retained under a framework agreement covering each of Forewind’s Environmental Impact Assessments, enabling the company to provide its expertise across a range of onshore and offshore consenting disciplines, including advice on key issues such as ecology, transport planning, marine mammals and Habitats Regulations Assessment.
The company has also provided support, expert input, and oral representation to the examination phases of both Dogger Bank Creyke Beck and Dogger Bank Teesside A & B, the latter of which closed on the 5th of February 2015; Royal HaskoningDHV’s sixth involvement in Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project Examinations under the Planning Act 2008.
