The Crown Estate has commissioned Royal Haskoning & GL Garrad Hassan to produce an information pack on the transmission infrastructure (onshore and offshore) that is associated with connecting offshore generation projects. This document will provide important reference material on the technical and environmental aspects of the main transmission infrastructure assets based on a range of typical connection scenarios, including purpose/function of the infrastructure, visualisation of typical infrastructure and potential environmental impacts.
The target audience for this document is planning and consenting authorities in the UK, although we consider it will be of value to a range of different stakeholders. The document will also be available as a web-based resource and will be launched via two training events (in London and Glasgow) in early December. To inform this high profile project we would be interested in hearing your views by completing a short online survey drawing on your experience.
