Boat Trip to Brighton Wind Farm

1 comment
Brighton & Hove, East Sussex

Why was the project locateed in Sussex and who owns the sea bed ?

This site was identified following the Government’s Offshore Energy Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), which looked at the potential for a new round of large-scale offshore wind farms in UK waters. Nine zones were identified and The Crown Estate, who owns the seabed around the UK, launched a tender process known as ‘Round 3’. E.ON was successful in being awarded exclusive development rights within what was initially known as Zone 6 off the Sussex coast. The initial SEA looked at a whole range of environmental and technical criteria establishing the area as suitable for wind farm development; including wind speed, water depth, distance from shore, environmental
designations, aggregates extraction zones and major shipping lanes.
