Project abandoned in UK for technical reasons
1 April 2007
EDF Energy has pulled the plug on its 30 turbine wind project for a site off the east coast of England near Cromer, Norfolk. The company blames ground conditions at the site for its decision to abandon the project, which has planning consent. It says it had conducted a tendering process for construction solutions and undertaken further site investigations to find ways to make the project technically and financially viable. EDF Energy's Jeremy Bush says: "The project team considered a number of engineering options over a three year period to try to take the project forward, but unfortunately none of the options could provide effective solutions to the problems."
