Swedish energy company Vattenfall, the developer of the Norfolk Vanguard and Norfolk Boreas offshore wind farms, has published feedback from recent workshops and drop-ins about onshore electrical infrastructure.

Back in July 2017, Vattenfall invited members of the community potentially affected by onshore electrical infrastructure needed to connect the wind farms to the National Grid to workshops and drop-ins.

These workshops looked at the refined cable relay station and substation search areas that were published in June 2017’s project newsletter.

Vattenfall has released all the information presented and gathered to date from the workshops and drop-ins. The material posted on the project websites include photomontages and 3D visualisations, along with notes and comments by participants at the local events.

“The information published today, including all feedback from the public, is a result of a lot of work by the project team, bringing together all the information gathered so far in the run up to the Preliminary Environmental Impact Report – due to be published in October – and Statutory Consultation later in the autumn,” Ruari Lean, Vattenfall’s Project Manager for Norfolk Vanguard, said:

“During the workshops held in July, many attendees asked us to publish the visualisations and presentations shown at the events. We have done that today by publishing a full record of all comments received at the workshop along with visualisations and project information.”

The two wind farms combined will, at 3.6GW, produce enough power to meet the equivalent annual electricity demand of more than 2.61 million UK households, around 4% of total annual UK consumption, Vattenfall said.
