Statoil, with Dong Energy and Siemens, is participating in an event organised by GROW: Offshore Wind on Monday 27th January 2014 in London. The purpose of the event is to explain to key regional and other industry organisations how their members can supply the offshore wind market over the coming 3-5 years, and is aimed at generating jobs and growth in the UK.
The application made in September 2013 by Dudgeon Offshore Wind to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to vary the offshore planning consent for the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm has now been approved. The original planning consent was granted in 2012.
