A wind farm, known as the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm (Dudgeon) is proposed for a site approximately 32km north of Cromer, off the north Norfolk coastline (Figure 1.1). In order to undertake the design and installation of the proposed wind turbine generator (WTG) foundation structures and cables, detailed metocean data for the site are required. This report, prepared for Dudgeon Offshore Wind Ltd (DOW), sets out the predicted waves, currents and water levels that will influence design based on two representative points within the wind farm site (Figure 1.1 and Table 1.1). The brief introductory text is followed by a comprehensive set of tables, figures and appendices presenting the required data. The numerical modelling presented builds on the work done by HR Wallingford for the Dudgeon Environmental Impact Assessment (HR Wallingford, 2009).
