A 50-50 joint venture has been formed between Eneco Wind UK Ltd (Eneco) and EDF Energy to hold the exclusive development rights to the Navitus Bay Offshore Wind Project, which is part of The Crown Estate Round 3 Offshore Wind Programme.

The Crown Estate, owner of the seabed and a partner in the project, awarded the area (known as Zone 7), which is to the west of the Isle of Wight, to Eneco in 2009. The proposed development of Navitus Bay could deliver between 900MW and 1200MW of capacity in the northern part of the awarded area, a site which covers 76 square miles. Eneco and EDF Energy will now work together to carry out a programme of onshore and offshore consultation with the local community.  They plan to submit a Development Consent Order (the wind farm’s planning application) to the Infrastructure Planning Commission (IPC) at the end of 2013.
