About Galloper Wind farm Ltd
We’re currently in the process of building Galloper Offshore Wind Farm which is an extension of the operational Greater Gabbard Wind Farm off the coast of Suffolk.
The project is an equal partnership between Innogy Renewables UK Limited, UK Green Investment Bank, Siemens Financial Services and Macquarie Capital.
In addition to community funds have been established in relation to the project.
The Galloper Wind Farm Fund (GWFF) aims to contribute to the appearance, setting, conservation, amenity, accessibility and enjoyment of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB and the area defined as within a 5km radius of Sizewell (the location of the Galloper substation). £187,000 will be made available over 17 years, to be paid at £11,000 per annum to Suffolk County Council and grants of 100% can be awarded towards project costs.
For more information and advice about the GWFF, please contact Cathy Smith at Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB, on 01394 445225 or email AONBgrants@suffolk.gov.uk
In addition the project has also created a further community benefit fund which is administered by EDF. This fund is worth £87,500 over 7 years and will be made available for community projects in a 10km radius of Sizewell. Applications are welcome throughout the year and forms are available from firstname.lastname@example.org
The project will also create around 700 jobs during the construction phase and once operational, around 90 long-term jobs. To find out more about the project and any job opportunities at the site visit the jobs section on the Galloper Wind Farm website.
