Ørsted Applies for Hornsea Four Development Consent

Ørsted has submitted a Development Consent Order (DCO) application for its Hornsea Four offshore wind project to the UK Planning Inspectorate.

The developer informed on 14 October that it had filed the DCO application on 29 September, after completing pre-application consultation.

Ørsted started introducing early-stage proposals for the Hornsea Four offshore wind farm at local information events organized in 2018. The following year, the company started with formal consultations on its proposal to develop Hornsea Four approximately 69 kilometres off the Yorkshire Coast.
