Plans for cables to connect electricity from the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm to the national grid will be on display this week.
Public exhibitions are to be held on RWE npower renewables’ proposed wind farm – which will be located off the Lincolnshire coast.
Electricity will connect onshore via four possible sites in Bicker Fen.
In the Boston area, the exhibitions will be held at Swineshead Village Hall, tomorrow (Tuesday), 3-7pm; Bicker Fen Village Hall, Wednesday, 3-7pm; and Stickney Community Hall, Saturday, 3-7pm. There are a further three in the Skegness area.
Each event will give people the opportunity to review the options RWE npower renewables’ have identified, the preliminary findings from environmental and engineering surveys, and view images of what the infrastructure could look like.
Members of the project team will also be on hand to answer questions and give information.
Jacob Hain, project manager for the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm said: “The responses and feedback we receive from local residents and businesses are essential as they will help us to choose the final zones for the electrical infrastructure. We want the community to share in the benefits of wind energy and would urge as many people as possible to come along to find out more.”
Public consultation on the project formally started on February 19 and will run until April 5.
All formal responses to the consultation need to be submitted to review RWE npower renewables’ between these dates.
