Forewind is a consortium comprising four leading international energy companies which joined forces to bid for the Dogger Bank Zone Development Agreement as part of The Crown Estate’s third licence round for UK offshore wind farms (Round 3).
Forewind combines extensive experience of international offshore project delivery and renewables development, construction, asset management and operations, with UK utility expertise spanning the complete electricity value chain. The consortium draws on exceptional financial strength and technical knowledge, which combined prepare it for the extraordinary challenges facing Round 3 developers.
Each of the four owners – all leading players in their own right - recognise that by joining forces they have a unique ability to both make a significant contribution to the future of wind energy in the UK and demonstrate commitment to the continuing development of offshore wind. Forewind is committed to securing all the necessary consents required for the construction and development of Dogger Bank. Planning approval for the first development at Dogger Bank Creyke Beck is anticipated around late 2014.
''Achieve development consent for a minimum of 9GW of safe, technically deliverable and economically viable offshore wind capacity on the Dogger Bank that will provide an attractive opportunity for investors.''
