Netherlands based wind farm developers has announced the location for a proposed wind off the coast of Dorset and Hampshire coasts.
Wind farm development follows the Crown Estate awarding Eneco a 715 square kilometre area of seabed to explore the most suitable place to locate a wind park in January 2010.
Over the past year, Eneco has been appraising the area and has concluded that a project of between 900MW and 1200MW of capacity could be located in the northern part of the awarded area, a site which covers 195 square kilometres.
At the closest point, the wind park will be approximately 13.2km away from Peveril Point in Swanage.
Eneco will look to submit their plans to the IPC in 2013, begin construction in 2016 and hopes the wind park will be fully operational by 2019.
