Giant Offshore Wind Farm now online

Energy giant Vattenfall has commissioned its Ormonde offshore wind farm off the coast of Cumbria, bringing the cutting-edge project up to its full 150MW capacity.

The milestone brings an end to a two-year construction project, which has seen 30 giant 5MW turbines, provided by Repower, installed 10 kilometres off Barrow-in-Furness before being connected to the grid. The facility is now expected to provide enough electricity for about 100,000 homes each year.
