NOTICE OF APPLICATION TO MAKE A NON-MATERIAL CHANGE TO THE FOLLOWING DEVELOPMENT CONSENT ORDER:
THE DOGGER BANK TEESSIDE A AND B OFFSHORE WIND FARM ORDER 2015 (SI 2015/1592) AS AMENDED BY THE DOGGER BANK TEESSIDE A AND B OFFSHORE WIND FARM AMENDMENT ORDER 2019 (SI 2019/699)
1 An application has been made by Sofia Offshore Wind Farm Limited and Doggerbank Offshore Wind Farm Project 3 Projco Limited to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to make a non-material change to the above mentioned Development Consent Order (the DCO).
2 The DCO granted development consent to Doggerbank Project 2 Bizco Limited for ‘Project A’ and Doggerbank Project 3 Bizco Limited for ‘Project B’ – two offshore wind turbine generating stations each comprising up to 200 wind turbine generators (WTGs) and associated development in the Dogger Bank Zone and the Borough of Redcar and Cleveland. Doggerbank Project 2 Bizco Limited has been renamed at Companies House as Doggerbank Offshore Wind Farm Project 3 Projco Limited (Project 3 Projco) and Doggerbank Project 3 Bizco Limited has been renamed at Companies House as Sofia Offshore Wind Farm Limited (SOWFL). SOWFL has renamed Project B to Sofia Offshore Wind Farm (Sofia). Together the Applicants therefore have the benefit of development consent for both Project A and Sofia.
3 The application seeks to make non-material changes to the drafting of the DCO to reflect the Project A and Sofia projects being taken forward by separate project companies. The changes are principally to the requirements of the Order to facilitate delivery of the projects and clarify project responsibilities. Further information regarding the proposed changes is set out in the Explanatory Note that is submitted with the application.
