Go ahead for Yorkshire and Humberside wind farm
An offshore wind project has been given the go ahead by the Government and is expected to support up to 900 jobs in Yorkshire and Humberside, plus millions of pounds’ worth of investment.
Dogger Bank Creyke Beck A and B wind project will include up to 400 wind turbines, around 130km off the coast of the East Riding of Yorkshire. With a maximum capacity of 2400MW it will generate enough electricity to power almost two million homes once built.
According to Energy and Climate Change Secretary, Ed Davey, this is one of the largest investments in the Humberside area in the last 50 years and clearly demonstrates that the UK is the leading market for offshore wind.
