”Our collaboration with Vattenfall is of great importance for us as an ambitious and fast-growing offshore wind construction company. Vattenfall is one of the largest players in the industry and already provides millions of European households with clean renewable energy. The Norfolk Boreas and Norfolk Vanguard projects are of particular interest, because of their multi-GW size and their important contribution to the UK renewable energy market, the largest in Europe,” Even Larsen, CEO of Havfram Wind, said.

When completed, Vattenfall’s Norfolk Offshore Wind Zone will have a capacity of over 4.2 GW and will be able to power around 4.6 million homes making it one of the largest offshore wind zones in the world.

The Norfolk Zone comprises the Norfolk Vanguard and the Norfolk Boreas offshore wind farms.

Located 72 kilometres off the Norfolk coast in southeast Britain, the 1.4 GW Norfolk Boreas is the first phase of the Norfolk Offshore Wind Zone for which Vattenfall secured a Contract for Difference in July this year.

Subject to a final investment decision, construction on the project will begin this year and the wind farm is expected to produce its first power in 2027.

The 1.8 GW Norfolk Vanguard is located some 47 kilometres from the Norfolk coast. The wind farm was awarded a Development Consent Order (DCO) in February of 2022.

Earlier this year, Ørsted awarded Havfram Wind with the contract to transport and install the wind turbines for the 2,852 MW Hornsea Three wind farm in the UK.
