The project has commenced work that will determine how the final wind farm will look.
At this stage it is too early to include many specific details however some key facts are known and will be built on over time as the project matures.
This diagram is a visual representation of the proposed North Falls Offshore Wind Farm in cross section, showing the key components above and below the water line from offshore to onshore.
It is a simplified representation only and not to scale.
Actual distances will be dependent on geography of the project.
Agreement for Lease with The Crown Estate
Range proposed across the two sections
Subject to final capacity but no less than Greater Gabbard
Total area across two sections
From shore to the closest point of the site
Distance from shore to the centre of the site
Shallowest water depth at the wind farm site
Deepest water depth at the wind farm site
Connecting the turbines and offshore substation
Total length from offshore substation to landfall
Deepest water depth along the cable route
Connecting the turbines to the National Grid
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.
