Development of 7.2GW Offshore Wind Farm Starts in UK

The wind energy company IBERDOLA has begun the development of the world’s largest wind power project with its partner, the Swedish company Vattenfall. The offshore wind farm will be located off the East coast of Britain, and will have a capacity of 7,200MW, and be able to supply around 5 million UK homes.

The first stage of the East Anglia wind farm will be the construction of two weather monitoring stations off the coast of Suffolk and Norfolk. The stations will be built by the Scottish company Woods Construction for €23 million, and will be completed next summer.

They “will measure the wind speed and direction, as well as temperature and air pressure for an area bigger than Norfolk, which will enable key technical and engineering decisions for the wind farm to be taken. Once they come into operation they will be among the most technically advanced weather facilities in the United Kingdom.”

“The project has the potential to deliver 7,200MW of installed capacity, which is capable of generating enough clean green energy to power 5 million homes and will be one of the world’s largest renewable energy projects.”

IBERDROLA plans to become the world leader in offshore wind farm technology and hopes that this will drive its future growth. “To achieve this goal, the Company’s Offshore Business Division, based in Scotland and offices in London, Berlin and Paris is developing its offshore wind project pipeline of over 11,000 MW across Northern Europe.”
