Five Estuaries Offshore Wind Farm is being developed as an extension to the existing Galloper Offshore Wind Farm, also operated by RWE.

Covering 128km2 across two seabed areas, the wind farm would be located 37km offshore at its closest point to Suffolk and make landfall in Tendring, Essex between Frinton-on-Sea and Holland-on-Sea before connecting to the National Grid near Little Bromley, Essex.
