DONG Energy has acquired the Hornsea zone and the project rights to Hornsea Project Two and Three, which have the potential of 3GW offshore wind capacity.
This follows DONG Energy’s acquisition of Hornsea Project One, a 1,200MW offshore wind project in the Round 3, which was announced in February 2015. DONG Energy is acquiring the Hornsea Zone from Mainstream Renewable Power and Siemens Financial Services. Following the takeover, DONG Energy will, as the sole owner, assume responsibility as lead developer of the whole Hornsea Zone. The Hornsea Zone is located between 31 and 190 km off the Yorkshire coast and covers more than 4,000 square kilometres.
