Royal HaskoningDHV supporting North Falls development

In: Windfarms

Royal HaskoningDHV has been appointed to provide Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) services in support of the Development Consent Order (DCO) application for the
North Falls project, a proposed extension to Greater Gabbard in the southern North Sea.

Royal HaskoningDHV is supporting North Falls Offshore Wind Farm, a joint venture between SSE Renewables and RWE Renewables. As part of the EIA and Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA), Royal HaskoningDHV will work closely with North Falls Offshore Wind and its wider team to develop management and mitigation measures to ensure the successful and sustainable development of
North Falls.

Daniel Harper, consents manager at North Falls, said: “We welcome Royal HaskoningDHV to the team and look forward to benefitting from their significant and comprehensive expertise in the sector. Their appointment marks the kick off of our EIA process and is a tangible step forward in this early phase of North Falls’ development.”

Ed Frost, Royal HaskoningDHV Project Director said: “this is an exciting opportunity to continue our leading role in offshore wind consultancy. We will be leading on a range of offshore and onshore disciplines that are required to successfully deliver a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project, incorporating the collective experience, having consented 12GW of offshore wind in the UK during more than 20 years in the industry.”

North Falls is being developed on a site more than 20 kilometres off the UK coast in the southern North Sea and covers a total area of 150 km². It is an extension project to the adjacent 504 megawatt Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm, opened in 2013.
