Minor delay to Walney Extension consent application

Late June is new timetable for submission of up to 768MW project

A consent application for the 572-768MW Walney Extension project has been rescheduled for submission to UK authorities on 28 June. Dong Energy had previously hoped to present its plans this month.

The minor delay has proven necessary in order to allow the team working on Walney Extension to "fully incorporate comments received from statutory consultees" and, thus, ensure that the company submits "the best possible application".

If approved, the Walney Extension would represent the third and final stage of the Walney offshore wind farm, located in Irish Sea waters off England's Cumbria coast.
