Ørsted awards100th Burbo Bank Extension Community Fund grant

The Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm in Liverpool Bay is now into its second year of energy production, and the associated community fund has reached the 100th local project being awarded a grant, with total grants now just short of £1m.

Imran Nawaz, Ørsted’s stakeholder advisor, said: “Having almost granted £1 million worth of funding to social and environmental projects in the locality, it’s great to see the positive impact that Ørsted is having across Liverpool Bay. It’s extremely rewarding to have made a difference to over 100 deserving projects and we look forward to continuing our support within the area.”

The Fund is being managed by national grant-making charity GrantScape and more details can be found at GrantScape’s website. Each year for the expected 25 year lifetime of the Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm, approximately £225,000 will be made available for community projects, which will benefit the local area.
