Location: Ørsted is proposing to develop Hornsea Project Four, 69km (at its closest point) off the Yorkshire Coast.
Size: We are currently investigating an offshore area of up to 492 km2 where up to 180 wind turbines could be located.
Ørsted is a renewable energy company that takes tangible action to create a world that runs entirely on green energy.
With eleven operational UK offshore wind farms and another two under construction, we are a substantial investor in the UK. We are committed for the long-term, both to leading the change to green energy and to investing in the communities where we work.
In August 2015, we acquired the rights to develop the Hornsea zone from SMart Wind Ltd, who were originally awarded the zone in The Crown Estate Round 3 bid process.
To date, Hornsea One is in operation, Hornsea Two has received planning consent and is under construction, while Hornsea Project Three has received a Development Consents Order (DCO).
We are now developing a fourth project in the zone, Hornsea Four. The project is in the pre-application process where thorough consultation on the project plans and proposals are taking place in parallel with the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process, resulting in an application for a DCO.
