Forewind has signed connection agreements with National Grid for three further 1GW grid connections, adding to the 3GW signed since the zone was awarded in early 2010. These latest agreements for connections located in Teesside and Yorkshire mean Forewind can proceed with the development of a total of 6GW of offshore wind farm generation capacity.

Forewind signed a 1GW grid agreement to connect its first project into the Creyke Beck substation, near Cottingham, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, in March 2010, so this latest signing means a total of 2GW of generation capacity could connect at this site. This first stage of Forewind’s development is known as Dogger Bank Creyke Beck.The other two new 1GW connections are likely to connect into an as yet undefined site in the Teesside area. Forewind and National Grid will now enter into a further study phase to identify the most suitable connection location within Teesside for these two projects. Forewind has the objective to achieve consent for at least 9GW of offshore wind farm projects, with a potential capacity for the Dogger Bank zone of up to 13GW. Forewind’s immediate priority is to focus on the development of its first six projects, but the organisation will also continue to engage with National Grid to identify future suitable connection points for the projects to come.
