Thanet Extension Offshore Wind Farm - Consultation on Material Change

View from top of WTG at Horns Rev Wind Farm

Following Deadline 3 of Thanet Extension Offshore Wind Farm’s Examination, Vattenfall Wind Power Limited committed to amend the project to seek to address issues raised by Interested Parties ("IPs") concerning availability of sea room and navigation safety in the area to the west of the Project.

The amendment introduces a Structures Exclusion Zone (SEZ) within the proposed Order Limits in order to ensure that no part of any structure (including turbines, offshore substation, meteorological mast, wave buoys and floating Lidar) can be placed within this area. This amendment was submitted at Deadline 4 of the Examination to the Planning Inspectorate.

The SEZ delineates an area within the Order Limits (termed the Red Line Boundary) in order to ensure that structures (including turbines, offshore substation, meteorological mast, wave buoys and floating Lidar) cannot be placed within this area. The SEZ will be specifically defined in the draft Order and demarcated on the offshore works plan(s).

On 9 April 2019 the Examining Authority made a procedural decision to accept the material change. That letter and its Annexes can be found on the Thanet Extension pages of the PINS website.

A package of documents have been produced setting out information on the proposed material change. These Consultation Documents are available to view or download free of charge below:
