Five Estuaries

Five Estuaries Offshore Wind Farm is being developed as an extension to the existing Galloper Offshore Wind Farm, also operated by RWE.

Covering 128km2 across two seabed areas, the wind farm would be located 37km offshore at its closest point to Suffolk and make landfall in Tendring, Essex between Frinton-on-Sea and Holland-on-Sea before connecting to the National Grid near Little Bromley, Essex.

Project status: In development

Five Estuaries Stage 2 Consultation commenced on 14 March 2023 and will close on 12 May 2023.  This is a statutory stage of consultation in accordance with the Planning Act 2008. During this time, we are consulting on our developed proposals for the Project and the initial findings of our Environmental Impact Assessment. It is proposed that the DCO application will be made late in 2023.

The Five Estuaries project partners are the same as the operational Galloper Wind Farm and include RWE (25%), a Macquarie-led consortium (25%), Siemens’ financing arm, Siemens Financial Services (25%), ESB (12.5%) and Sumitomo Corporation (12.5%). RWE is leading the development of the project.
