Atlantic Array is being delayed

Monday, 19 November, 2012 - 15:00

The British offshore wind farm Atlantic Array is being delayed. In early November the developer RWE npower announced that it won't submit the plans for the project until early 2013. Originally, the company had announced it would be submitting specific plans this year. They need a little more time to evaluate the recently received feedback.

RWE is facing quite a bit of resistance in connection with the project. The citizens are not the only ones who are against the planned location, Bristol Channel.

In the summer RWE had already decided to just build between 188 and 278 systems, instead of the originally planned 417 wind energy facilities, 14 km off the coast.
