Thanet Extension DCO Application Exits Examination Phase

The UK Planning Inspectorate has completed the examination of Vattenfall's application for the Development Consent Order (DCO) for the Thanet Extension offshore wind farm.

The Examining Authority informed that the findings, conclusions and recommendations from the examination will be sent to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) by 11 September.

GoBe, the lead EIA consultant for the project, provided strategic advice and technical assessment services, as well as project management throughout EIA, application and the examination process.

To remind, Vattenfall submitted the application for the Thanet Extension DCO to the Planning Inspectorate in June last year, while the Examining Authority was appointed at the end of 2018.

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.
