ScottishPower Renewables has officially submitted plans for East Anglia THREE, a new 1,200MW wind farm to be located off the coast of Suffolk.
The East Anglia THREE development will require up to 172 wind turbines, and covers an area of 305km2 in the southern North Sea. Once completed, the wind farm could power the annual electricity demands of more than 850,000 homes. The planning application will be considered by the National Infrastructure team within the Planning Inspectorate. If approved, it is anticipated that onshore construction could begin in 2021, with offshore work starting in 2022 and first power generation achieved in 2023.
