Utility reveals 100 MW plan off Norway

Plans for a 1000 MW North Sea wind farm at Sørlig, 130 kilometres southwest of the Norwegian town of Lista, have been unveiled by Norwegian utility Lyse Energi. The company has submitted a planning application for the project, to comprise 200, 5 MW turbines, to Norway's Water Resources & Energy Directorate. It hopes to get the required permits within the next two years and would make a final decision on whether to proceed in 2011. Construction would start in 2014 with a view to completion in 2017. The selected site is outside the country's main shipping lanes but is considered a prominent fishing ground for North Sea cod. Wind speeds average 11 m/s at 90 metres.
