Vattenfall Submits Thanet Extension DCO Application
Vattenfall has submitted an application for the development consent order (DCO) for the Thanet Extension offshore wind farm to the UK Planning Inspectorate.
The Inspectorate received the application on 27 June and now has 28 days to review and decide whether or not to accept it for examination.
Vattenfall expects to receive the Secretary of State’s decision on the application in mid-2019.
If consented by the UK Government, Thanet Extension will extend the 300MW Thanet offshore wind farm, which comprises 100 turbines.
Located offshore Kent, the proposed wind farm will consist of up to 34 turbines, potentially doubling the output of the existing wind farm with more powerful machines.
