UK gives go-ahead for 235 MW Humber Gateway offshore wind farm

E.ON has been granted permission by the UK government to construct a 230 MW wind farm off the coast of Humberside.
 
Chris Huhne, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change said: “Offshore wind not only provides clean, green, secure energy, the investment that comes with it is great for the UK economy too.
 
“A new wind farm off the Humberside coast will be a further jobs and investment boost for the region, hot on the heels of Siemens’ announcement of plans to develop the Port of Hull.”
 
The Humber Gateway wind farm will generate enough electricity to power up to around 150 000 homes.
 
The announcement came as energy minister Charles Hendry co-chaired the Offshore Wind Developers Forum in London, where wind farm developers discussed how the Government’s proposals for reforming the electricity market can help remove barriers to investment.
