The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm is an exciting £1.5 billion project to harness offshore wind to power more than 410,000 UK homes. This 402MW offshore wind farm will be located some 20 miles off the coast of the seaside town of Cromer in North Norfolk.
All the offshore and onshore construction consents have been in place for this wind farm since late 2012, and it is now scheduled to be completed and fully commissioned by late 2017.
Through the joint venture company Dudgeon Offshore Wind Limited, it is owned by Statoil, China Resources and Masdar.
Statoil is a leading Norwegian energy company, China Resources is a group of companies in a wide variety of businesses, and Masdar is an international investor in renewable energy and sustainable technology based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Statoil is developing the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm and will continue as its operator when it starts generating electricity in early 2017.
A grant from the Dudgeon Community Fund will enable Reepham High School to make greater use of its Observatory, supporting student STEM studies and enabling the local community to gain a greater understanding of the night sky in a county that is famed for its ‘big skies’.
