Details

On 26 September 2014, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change granted a Development Consent Order (DCO) for Burbo Bank Extension Offshore Wind Farm. The pre-application, examination and DCO documents can be found on the planning inspectorate website.

The DCO authorises DONG Energy Burbo Extension (UK) Limited to construct and operate an offshore generating station up to a maximum capacity of 259 MW, it is an extension to the west of the existing Burbo Bank offshore wind farm in Liverpool Bay. The project is located approximately 7km north of Hoylake, Wirral and 12km from the Point of Ayr, Wales. The development could comprise of up to:

  • 69 wind turbine generators
  • 1 offshore substation
  • 1 export cable extending from the wind farm into Welsh waters to the landfall between Rhyl and Prestatyn.

On 16 March 2017 the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) deemed it necessary to vary the deemed marine licences (DMLs) of the Burbo Bank Extension Windfarm Order 2014 due to the incorrect numbering of Schedules 2 and 3 in the previous versions of the DMLs. in exercise of the powers conferred by section 72(3)(d) of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009, the MMO has varied the DMLs, effective from 16 March 2017.
