Developer in talks to push Galloper wind farm project

Plans to build an offshore wind farm off the coast of East Anglia could be resurrected in the Spring, it has been revealed.

Developer RWE Innogy said it was in talks with a several potential partners to build the Galloper wind farm, despite shelving the project two months ago.

Stephen Thomas, head of communications for RWE Innogy UK, confirmed that RWE was talking with “a number of companies” with SSE to go ahead with Galloper as a Contracts for Difference Project, but with an outside possibility of the project still being developed under the Renewables Obligation.

“We are looking at all options for Galloper to see where the project goes in the future. We all want the project to work.”

“We hope that in March/April time, we can come out with something that explains what the future for the project is.”

If funded, the project would see 68 turbines built off the Suffolk coast, estimated to be worth £20m and 850 jobs to the local economy.

In a statement, RWE said: “This process naturally involves engaging with a number of different companies, however at this stage, no appointments have been finalised and as such, we are unable to provide any further details at this time.”

Peter Aldous, MP for Waveney, added: “This is excellent news that the plans are still moving forward. This project will result in significant benefits to the whole region – and our economy and employment prospects.”
