RES was appointed to provide resource and services in the development of the 714MW East Anglia ONE Wind Farm and proposed 800MW East Anglia ONE North and 900MW East Anglia TWO projects, all located off the coast of Suffolk.
East Anglia ONE Offshore Wind Farm – Consent Compliance Services
Working within the East Anglia ONE Project Team, RES was appointed as the project’s Consent Compliance Manager with a focus on discharging the pre-construction requirements and conditions of the Development Consent Order and its Deemed Marine Licence on time and on budget.
The role required management of the Consent Compliance contractor and other specialist contractors, liaison with the various project packages and control functions, other internal teams and external stakeholders such as the Marine Management Organisation and statutory nature conservation body.
Key consent compliance challenges related to the need to secure a Deemed Marine Licence variation against an increase in maximum piling hammer energy and challenges around designation of the Southern North Sea Special Area of Conservation for harbour porpoise.
East Anglia ONE North & East Anglia TWO Offshore Wind Farms – Pre-application Phase Services
RES was appointed as the Offshore Consents Manager for both projects in 2018 with a remit to manage all activities relating to securing offshore consents. The role was based within the client’s Project Team managing both internal and external resources and acting as the main interface with the client’s engineering team. An important focus was placed on reducing risk to consent and maintaining flexibility of construction options within the project envelope.
Key activities related to management of the offshore EIA and HRA, preparation of consultation and application materials, leading on all offshore stakeholder engagement with both the local community, NGOs and statutory bodies and support through application determination and the ‘examination’ of each project by the Planning Inspectorate.
A key challenge relating to the two projects was the need to develop them in parallel to meet The Crown Estate leasing requirements for the third leasing round of offshore wind. Applications for each Project were submitted on time in November 2019 and the projects are now in determination, having completed their respective ‘examinations’ in July 2021.
