Sofia launches Construction Community Fund

In: Windfarms
The 1.4 GW Sofia offshore farm and Tees Valley Community Foundation (TVCF) are launching a £150,000 Construction Community Fund.

The British offshore wind farm will be situated on Dogger Bank in the North Sea, 195 km from England’s north-east coast. It is wholly owned by RWE Renewables, and power will come to shore between Redcar and Marske-by-the-Sea, Teesside, via a converter station which is soon to enter construction. The project represents significant building works over the next four years, and the community fund represents efforts to support the community in projects that may not have gone ahead without financial support.

“We’re delighted to announce details of this fund, thanks to the generous support from Sofia Offshore Wind Farm,”
said Hugh McGouran, CEO at TVCF. “Grant applications are invited from any constituted groups working across the area of benefit, but there will be particular interest in applications that address local community issues such as social isolation or the effects of poverty, and projects that improve the environment or support sustainability.”

TVCF will manage and distribute the fund, which will be available to charities and community groups that serve “residents living close to the project’s onshore electrical infrastructure including Marske-by-the-Sea, New Marske, Yearby, Wilton Village, Kirkleatham, Lazenby, Old Lackenby, South Lackenby, Whale Hill, Eston, Grangetown and Redcar East.”
