Wind Farm Plans

You're being asked what you think of plans to add more turbines to the Kentish Flats Offshore Wind Farm.

Vattenfall, the energy company which runs the site, is starting a 5 week community consultation on its proposals to add as many as 17 more turbines to the 30 already in place.

The plan would see the wind farm able to generate between 350,000MWh and just over 430,000MWh of green electricity every year, which is equivalent to the total annula electricity needs of between 82,000 and 96,000 households a year.

Göran Loman, Vattenfall’s Project Manager for the Kentish Flats Extension, says: “It’s really important that the community and all those with an interest in our proposal to extend Kentish Flats get involved and tell us what they think.”

He added: “Don’t blow this chance! Look out for the adverts we will be placing in local papers, important project information in public places, visit our website and come along to the public information days we are holding on the 23 and 24 of February in Herne Bay and Whitstable."

Vattenfeld has worked closely with Kent County Council and Canterbury City Council to develop the consultation.
