The proposed Humber Gateway Offshore Wind Farm would be located eight kilometres off the Yorkshire coast.
Around 80 turbines would generate up to 300MW. The planning process for this technically complex project is starting with a series of consultation meetings with representatives from the local fishing industry and local coastline communities. This step will safeguard that the interests of residents and the environment are considered early in the planning phase. E.ON is already operating 20 onshore and offshore wind parks in the UK. E.ON is focusing its investments into renewables on wind power and bio natural gas. The Group has earmarked an investment volume of around € 3 billion until 2010.
