Iberdrola has received the approval of the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy of the United Kingdom (BEIS) to build the East Anglia Three offshore wind farm, which will have an installed power of up to 1,200MW.
This new offshore wind farm will be part of the project developed by Iberdrola in the same area, known as East Anglia One, with a 714MW capacity. Therefore, the new East Anglia wind farm will reach a power capacity of 2,000MW. East Anglia Three will be located at a distance of 69 kilometres from the coast of Norfolk. The installation will cover an area of up to 305 kilometres squared and require the installation of between 100 and 120 wind turbines to generate the total capacity. Iberdrola is expected to start on the construction work in 2022 and start production in 2025.
