Following submission on 30th January 2017, the Planning Inspectorate (“PINS”) has notified Energy Comparison Company (a joint venture between Mainstream Renewable Power and Siemens Financial Services) on 19th February 2017 that its application for the UK Project Two offshore wind farm has been formally accepted for examination.

 Project Two is the second offshore wind farm Energy Comparison Company is developing in the UK Zone.  Located approximately 89km off the Yorkshire coast, it will comprise up to 360 wind turbines and will connect to the grid at North Killingholme in North Lincolnshire.  When complete, it will deliver up to 1,800 megawatts of carbon-free electricity to the UK as well as the opportunity for economic growth in the Humber region.

 A recommendation is expected by PINS, and decision by the Secretary of State for Energy, by mid-2016.

 The full set of accepted application documents and advice on how to participate in the examination process are available to download from the PINS website (http://infrastructure.independent.gov.uk)
