A SECONDARY grid connection will be needed for an offshore wind farm.
SSE Renewables had already secured a grid connection at Branxton, near Torness, for the Berwick Bank Wind Farm.
Now, following a holistic network design review of the British electricity network by National Grid Electricity System Operator (NGESO), a secondary grid connection will be created at Blyth in Northumberland.
Berwick Bank Wind Farm, which is being developed by SSE Renewables, would have a capacity of 4.1GW.
Last month, it was confirmed that the size of the proposed offshore wind farm would be reduced by about 20 per cent – just 12 months after its size had already been reduced by 10 per cent.
Despite the most recent change in size – down from 1,313.89 sq km to 1,010.23 sq km – the maximum number of turbines remains at 307.
