The UK Secretary of State for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy awarded development consent for Vattenfall's application to build Norfolk Vanguard Offshore Wind Farm.
Located more than 47km from the Norfolk coast and with an installed capacity of 1.8GW, Norfolk Vanguard will provide the equivalent electricity needs of 1.95 million UK homes per year. Vattenfall submitted an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) in June 2018. The Examination phase began in December 2018, concluded in June 2019, and the DCO has now been granted by the Secretary of State.
