Wessex Archaeology (WA) was commissioned by Centrica Renewable Energy Limited (Centrica) to prepare a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) for the offshore elements of the Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm (Race Bank) project. The Race Bank project will consist of three physical elements: The offshore wind farm (OWF), comprising WTGs, up to three (3) offshore sub-stations, their foundations and the inter-turbine cables;The offshore export cables, comprising of a maximum of two pairs of cables running in a corridor from the OWF to a landfall on the coast in The Wash, including an additional area that has been separately assessed (WA 2010a);The terrestrial export cables, including the connection chambers or jointing bays, buried cables and the wind farm sub-station at Walpole. This WSI considers the first two of these elements, covering the area below the Mean High Water Springs mark.
