Why Lincolnshire?

The outline offshore cable route and the corresponding onshore grid connection location for ODOW have been determined by National Grid Electricity System Operator (NGESO) as part of a Holistic Network Design (HND) for all new offshore wind connections. The HND is a new process, introduced as part of the Government’s Offshore Transmission Network Review (OTNR), which has balanced environmental, social and economic costs to determine the optimal connection points for new offshore wind farms. Until such a time that a preferred location is determined by NGESO, ODOW are appraising the two options recommended by NGESO in their July 2022 HND report.
