About the project

Vattenfall has been operating Thanet Offshore Wind Farm for 6 years. When it was built it was the world’s largest wind farm, and since that time it has produced enough renewable energy to power around 220,000 UK homes per year.*

Why extend Thanet Offshore Wind Farm?

We know that extension projects can deliver many benefits: 

  • They can deliver lower cost renewable energy because we can benefit from: 

- shared operations and maintenance approaches, 

- our knowledge of constructing and operating in the area, 

- the latest turbine technology. 

  • They allow us to build on our existing investment – in the local community and in a local workforce
