DONG Energy reaches agreement with The Crown Estate for Hornsea Zone

Dong Energy has reached an agreement with The Crown Estate to reconfigure the Hornsea zone as part of the Round 3 offshore wind development zones.

Following its acquisition of the remainder of the Hornsea zone from mainstream Renewable Power and Siemens Financial Services in 2015, DONG Energy has now concluded its zone appraisal process which has resulted in project-specific agreements for lease being agreed for three projects, being: Hornsea Project Two, Three and Four.

The previously identified Project Three has been split into two separate projects: Hornsea Project Three, to the east of Project Two, and Hornsea Project Four, to the west of Project Two.

This follows DONG Energy’s recent announcement that it will build the 1.2 gigawatt Hornsea Project One, which will be capable of powering well over 1 million UK homes.

Brent Cheshire, DONG Energy’s UK country chairman, said: “Having just confirmed that we are building Hornsea Project One – the world’s biggest offshore wind farm – we see these projects as a vital part of our post-2020 pipeline.”

Hornsea Project Two has already been identified as having a capacity of up to 1.8 gigawatts. A planning consent decision for Project Two is expected later this year. Project Three, meanwhile, will shortly be taken forward to external consultation, and is estimated to have the potential for 1-2 gigawatt capacity. Project Four could add around a further 1 gigawatts.
