RWE Innogy UK continues to lead the development and construction of Galloper Offshore Wind Farm after agreeing exit arrangements with SSE.
The project is progressing along the existing timeline, with new strategic equity partners being sought. Good progress is being made to secure financing and equity partners, with a strong appetite in the project confirmed by potential investors. The construction of Galloper has started with enabling works for the wind farm’s onshore substation near Sizewell in Suffolk, well underway. Detailed design work on the Electrical Supply has begun with construction activity expected to begin in early 2015. Announcements are expected to be made in the near future on the selection of preferred suppliers for key contracts.
