Navitus Bay Wind Park: Time to give us the hard facts, Eneco

First published in Opinion

THERE must be something to this windfarm business, given the number of onshore turbines you see in countries like Holland, Germany and France (to name but three).

In mainland Europe they seem to be accepted as the norm and a significant contributor to energy supply.

The case of the Navitus Bay project is another matter entirely.

Although the company behind it Eneco talk the talk, they have provided virtually nothing in the way of hard fact to back up their assertions.

Organisations across Dorset, not least Bournemouth Borough Council have repeatedly asked for meaningful data upon which to base an assessment of the plan to site hundreds of turbines off the coast.

So far it hasn’t been forthcoming.

The economic impact of the proposal could be massive as could the environmental effect. Eneco need to make their case fully, properly, transparently and quickly.
