Shell appeals over largest offshore wind farm  


Royal Dutch Shell and its partners in a project near London to build the world’s biggest offshore wind farm have appealed against a local government’s refusal of planning permission, the companies said.

Swale Borough Council in June rejected an application to build a substation needed to feed power from the London Array wind farm onto the UK’s power grid.

“Swale councillors raised concerns when they considered our substation plans in June,” the consortium said in a statement on Tuesday. “We now hope that the enhancements we’ve made to our proposals result in a solution that is acceptable to everyone.”

London Array would cost about 1.5 billion pounds ($2.81 billion), a source close to the project said.

Shell’s partners in the project are the UK arm of German utility E.ON and anglo-Danish wind power developer Core Ltd.

London Array would have a capacity of 1,000 megawatts, enough to supply the power needs of 750,000 homes.
