World’s largest offshore wind farm opens off northwest England
« Reply #33 on: September 08, 2018, 09:08:50 am »
The world’s largest offshore wind farm will open on Thursday off the northwest coast of England when Danish energy group Orsted (ORSTED.CO) unveils the Walney Extension project.
The wind farm has a capacity of 659 megawatts (MW), enough to power almost 600,000 homes, and overtakes the London Array off England’s east coast which has a capacity of 630 MW.
Walney Extension is made up of 87 turbines built by Siemens Gamesa (SGREN.MC) and MHI Vestas, and covers 145 square kilometers (55 square miles), which is equivalent to around 20,000 football pitches.
The 40 eight-megawatt MHI Vestas turbines being used stand 195 meters (213 yards) tall and are the largest wind turbines in operation globally.
