Navitus Bay Development Offshore Wind Farm Proposals in Dorset

Posted on the 15 August 2013 by Dorsetenergized @dorsetenergized

Navitus Bay Development Limited released a video earlier this year to show how their proposed wind farm off the coast of Bournemouth, Dorset will look, along with some mock-up photo montages of the proposed views.

The proposed Navitus Bay Wind Park is an exciting 50-50 Joint Venture between Eneco Wind UK Ltd (Eneco) and EDF Energy.

According to The Guardian’s recent article on the global growth of wind turbines at www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-21277906, the UK is by far the world leader in offshore wind deployment. Eneco Wind UK Ltd and EDF Energy, who will be installing the turbines have said the scheme could start generating energy by 2020 and has the potential to produce enough energy for the domestic needs of 790,000 average UK households.

A nine week public consultation began back on 1st February 2013, and Navitus Bay are hosting consultations throughout the area this September 2013 showing new pictures and interactive 3d models of the site. There will also be experts on hand to talk through the plans and answer any questions you might have.

Friends of the Earth reported that anti-wind protestors gathered on Swanage seafront back in January, but they were surprised to see the strength of support for the project, with over 100 brought together by the newly formed BH Green alliance.
