EDF Energy Renewables

EDF Energy Renewables, developer of the Teesside offshore windfarm, is a 50/50 joint venture between EDF Energy and EDF Energies Nouvelles. It was set up in 2008 to develop, build, own and operate renewable assets in the UK. 

EDF Energy,  a wholly-owned subsidiary of the EDF Group, generates around one fifth of the UK's electricity, supplying electricity and gas to around 5.5 million residential and business customers. EDF Energies Nouvelles operates in Europe and North America and is a market leader in green electricity production, with a portfolio of 5,372 MW of gross installed capacity. 

Offshore construction work on the Teesside scheme started in February 2012 and the project is EDF Energy Renewables' first UK offshore wind farm. At 62 MW, the wind farm will produce enough low carbon electricity to supply the annual needs of approximately 40,000 homes, or the equivalent of most of the households in Redcar and Cleveland. It will offset the annual release of approximately 80,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide. 

The windfarm consists of 27, 2.3MW turbines, occupying an area of around 10 km² in water depths ranging from 8 m to 16 m at chart datum. The wind farm is connected by two 33 kV subsea cables to an onshore substation at Redcar.
