RenewableUK is welcoming today’s announcement that EDF Energy Renewables (EDF ER) is to start work on the Blyth offshore wind farm.

The implementation of innovative new technology, such as 66 kilovolt cabling and concrete gravity base foundations for the first time in British waters, are significant steps in the evolution of the offshore wind industry.

RenewableUK’s Chief Executive, Hugh McNeal, said:

The Blyth project highlights how Britain is leading the way in offshore wind innovation. Our industry is at the forefront of developing renewable technology that will be exported around the world.

The Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult worked on the project from its inception. Chief Executive, Andrew Jamieson, said:

EDF Energy Renewables’ green light on the Blyth Offshore Wind Farm is great news for the industry, and for the north-east in particular. The Catapult will continue to work closely with EDF ER through this and other projects on the development of innovative new technologies to further drive down the cost of offshore wind.
