Stakeholder engagement for offshore wind farm

PR for offshore wind farm

14 October 2016

The appointment to provide support on the Blyth offshore project follows MHW's role in providing communications support for the company's Teesside Offshore Wind Farm at Redcar and previous involvement in various onshore wind farm developments.

EDF ER recently established a project office in Blyth to coordinate the various construction and engineering activities associated with the scheme.

Construction work on a new electricity substation on the site of the former Blyth power station has started and gravity base foundations for the project are being built on the River Tyne, in Wallsend.

Offshore work will start in 2017 to install five turbines of 41.5MW total capacity, some 5.7km off the coast. The turbines will provide enough low carbon electricity to power 33,000 homes.

MHW will be assisting the EDF ER communications and project teams with media liaison, local community engagement and stakeholder support.
