Extension for online wind farm comments


The closing date for the statutory consultation period for the Triton Knoll offshore wind farm electrical system has been extended until December 22 for online questionnaire responses.

Wind farm developer RWE Innogy UK has taken this decision after a technical issue on the project website prevented people from filling in the comments form online. An editable questionnaire can now be found on the Triton Knoll website at www.rweinnogy.co.uk/triton

The consultation will be used to shape the final proposal for the Triton Knoll electrical system, which includes a major sub station being built at Bicker Fen to connect it to the national grid, opposite Little Hale Fen. The final application would then be submitted for planning consent. The wind farm could provide enough electricity to power 800,000 homes a year.

RWE Innogy UK’s project manager for Triton Knoll, Jacob Hain, said: “We want to ensure that all those who wish to respond to the consultation are given the chance to do so.”

Feedback is required no later than 5pm on December 22.
