Description

ABP Marine Environmental Research Ltd (ABPmer) has been commissioned by 
DONG Energy Power (DONG) to undertake a metocean study for the proposed 
Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm. The proposed development site is within the 
Greater Wash area, established from the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) 
for Round 2 offshore wind farms (BMT Cordah, 2003). More specifically, the site is 
located, approximately, 8km off the Holderness Coast with a development area of 
35km2, providing the potential for up to 240MW of installed capacity with between 60 to 
80 turbines. The project site has a relatively uniform seabed profile ranging in depth 
from around 11m to more than 20m Chart Datum (CD), and is devoid of any major 
sandbank features. 
The report within this series presents the study findings, which are presented according to the study 
specification.
