Scottish Power Renewables and Vattenfall, the joint developers of the East Anglia Offshore Wind zone, have said that the offshore weather monitoring stations will provide essential data for an area bigger than Norfolk and inform key technical and engineering decisions for the wind farm.
East Anglia Offshore Wind is a 50-50 joint venture between Scottish Power Renewables and Vattenfall. The project has the potential to deliver 7,200 megawatts of installed capacity, which is capable of generating sufficient
clean green energy to power five million homes.
