BP, EnBW, Cobra & Flotation Energy Kick Off Consultations for UK Offshore Wind Projects
Community consultations were launched for the Morgan, Mona, and Morecambe offshore wind farms to be located in the Irish Sea.
The consultations will run from 19 April to 4 June and will be open to the local community and stakeholders.
Throughout May, several events will be hosted across different locations in northwest England, the Isle of Man, and Wales for local residents and stakeholders to learn more about each project and ask questions.
This latest round follows the first stage of consultation for Morecambe and Morgan launched in November 2022.
These new consultations will look at three wind farms including full statutory consultation of Mona’s transmission and generation assets; statutory consultation for Morgan’s generation assets; and Morecambe’s generation assets, and a joint non-statutory consultation for Morecambe and Morgan’s transmission assets.
Altough Morgan and Morecambe aim to share their transmission work, and the projects are closely linked, all three wind farms will submit their own development orders, according to the press release from BP.
The applications for those orders are expected to be submitted in 2024.
Morgan and Mona are being developed under a joint venture between BP and Energie Baden-Wurttemberg AG (EnBW), and Morecambe is being developed under a joint venture between Cobra Instalaciones y Servicio and Flotation Energy.
Together, these three wind farms have the potential generation of over 3 GW when operational, which could help contribute to the UK Government’s commitment to 50 GW of offshore wind power by 2030.
