Wind industry newcomer Warwick Energy plans 108 MW farm in Irish Sea

Newcomer to the wind industry Warwick Energy has lodged one of two further applications for consents to build offshore wind farms under the UK's first round of offshore licensing. It has applied to build 30 turbines (108 MW) in the Irish Sea, 12.9 kilometres south west of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria. Warwick Energy was formed in 2000 with a package of small electricity generation and gas production assets. Its majority shareholder is South African financial institution Coronation Holdings. According to the company's Richard Evans, in addition to its Barrow offshore wind farm, Warwick is in the early stages of looking at other offshore wind projects, including an extension to the Barrow site if it is given the go-ahead. Warwick's application is being channelled through the Department of Trade and Industry, which is co-ordinating the offshore consenting process on behalf of other government ministries.
