In East Yorkshire, England, near Howden, Boom Power has started working with local landowners and National Grid to create a 400MW solar farm.
The company has obtained an export grid capacity at the Drax power station, located in Yorkshire, as part of this initiative.
Boom Power will have more than 2GW of renewable energy projects in development or already producing electricity as a result of the East Yorkshire solar farm.
A Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project designation would apply (NSIP).
In order to help the development through the NSIP planning process and get a development consent order for the project, Boom Power has teamed up with the law firm Pinsent Masons and the infrastructure consultancy business Aecom.
Mark Hogan, Boom Power founder and director, said: “I am pleased to be on another NSIP journey for what would be a pioneering project to tackle the energy crisis we’re experiencing.
“Boom Power are perfectly positioned, holding extensive knowledge and experience in this sector to deliver another outstanding solar project in the near future.”
