The Morgan, Mona, and Morecambe offshore wind farms, which will be situated in the Irish Sea, have begun community engagements.
While Morecambe is being developed under a joint venture between Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios and Flotation Energy, Morgan and Mona are being developed as a joint venture between bp and EnBW.
When operational, Morgan, Mona, and Morecambe have a combined potential generation capacity of over 3 GW, which could contribute to the UK government’s goal of developing 50 GW of offshore wind power by 2030.
The local community and stakeholders may participate in the discussions, which will take place from April 19 through June 4.
The Isle of Man, Wales, and northwest England will all conduct events throughout the month of May where locals and stakeholders can find out more about the various projects and ask questions.
All three wind farms will submit their own development permission orders, despite the fact that Morgan and Morecambe intend to share their transmission works and that the projects are closely related. Applications are anticipated to be made for those orders in 2024.
Project director for bp, Richard Haydock, said “These consultations are the next step in us delivering our offshore wind projects and supplying UK customers with home-grown renewable energy.”
“bp and EnBW are working closely with Cobra and Flotation Energy to develop the plans for the wind farms, so we encourage anyone who can, to attend the events and provide feedback. We look forward to working with the community and we’re excited to work with our partners to help deliver the next step in getting our wind farms online.”
