EDF Decides to Build Blyth Offshore Wind Farm

EDF Energy Renewables will build a new offshore wind farm off the coast of Blyth in Northumberland. Onshore construction work has already begun and offshore work will start in 2017.

The wind farm will comprise five turbines, totaling 41.5MW in capacity. The project has permission for a maximum total generating capacity of almost 100MW.

Blyth Offshore Wind project will be built by EDF Energy Renewables, a 50-50 UK joint venture between EDF Energies Nouvelles and EDF Energy.

Matthieu Hue, EDF Energy Renewables CEO, said: “As a company, we already have a strong presence in the North East, in low carbon electricity generation and serving customers including our first offshore wind farm at Teesside so we’re pleased to be able to add another project to our portfolio in the region.”
