Atlantic Array Wind Farm

About this project

The development proposal comprises the construction and operation of up to 240 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a maximum tip height of up to 220 metres, up to four offshore substations, up to five meteorological stations, inter-array cables that collect and transfer power generated by the WTGs to the offshore substations and export cables that take the electricity generated by the WTGs to shore.

The onshore electrical works consist of underground cables running from mean low water to the south of Westward Ho! at Cornborough Range to a new onshore substation adjacent to the National Grid substation at Alverdiscott in north Devon, and an underground connection between the two substations. Offsite highway works to accommodate the transport of abnormal loads to the onshore substation site are also proposed.

The wind farm is expected to have an installed capacity of up to 1,200 MW.
