Facts & Figures

Wind turbine.

Key statistics

While options will be refined as the project progresses towards submission of its applications, the development of North Falls to date has identified a number of key fact and figures about the project, both onshore and offshore.

Some figures are indicative or provide a ‘range’ to ensure the application submitted allows enough flexibility for future advances in technology or changes to legislative or other frameworks.

From offshore to onshore

This diagram is a visual representation of the proposed North Falls Offshore Wind Farm in cross section assuming an onshore grid connection. It shows the key components above and below the water line from offshore to onshore. These include offshore wind turbines on foundations, array cables between the turbines to the offshore substation, export cables and onshore infrastructure.

For clarity please be aware that this is a simplified representation of an offshore wind farm only and not to scale as actual distances will depend on the final plans for the project.

North Falls in numbers

UK homes at night.

Electricity generation

The amount of power to be generated by North Falls will be dependent on the final capacity but it will be no less than Greater Gabbard.

Greater Gabbard generates enough power to supply the annual electricity needs of approximately 400,000 UK homes.
