DONG get Solway extension

dongOn 19 July 2011, The Crown Estate granted DONG Energy an Exclusivity Agreement for a period of twelve months.

As part of the Exclusivity Agreement, DONG Energy carried out an early consultation programme between December 2011 and April 2012.

The results of this early consultation are now being evaluated and no site specific details have been worked up at this stage.

Marine Scotland is reviewing Scotland’s Sectoral Marine Plan for Offshore Wind Energy and as part of that process, will be consulting with local stakeholders, including those in the Solway Region.

The Crown Estate intends to extend the Exclusivity Agreement for the search area in the Solway region until after publication of the updated Marine Plan which is expected in June 2013.

According to DONG, they are waiting on the update to the Marine Plan to make any decision regarding the progression of the Outer Solway project.
