Offshore wind farm plan unveiled
Monday 07 April 2008
*The energy giant E.ON has unveiled plans to build one of the biggest wind farms in Britain, saying it wants a swift resolution to an objection from the Ministry of Defence.
The company says the Humber Gateway development, five miles off the coast of east Yorkshire, would generate enough electricity to power nearly 200,000 homes.
E.ON's chief executive, Paul Golby, said: "The next generation of large-scale offshore wind farms have a vital role to play in the UK's future energy mix. This scheme will displace the emission of hundreds of the thousands of tonnes of carbon dioxide every year and will make a significant contribution to help the government meet its tough renewable energy targets."
E.ON said it was submitting the application despite an objection from the MoD.
