World’s Biggest Offshore Wind Farm is in UK

The British government wants to provide energy for millions of people


Offshore Wind Farm

It’s good news for renewable energy advocates as the UK government pushes through with its latest project: building the biggest offshore wind farm in the world. It’s the Hornsea Project Two and it will build around 300 turbines to produce the energy that can power 1.8 million homes. This extension of the 1.2 gigawatt Hornsea Project One has the capacity of 1.8 GW. It will be located 90 kilometers east of the English coast.

This is part of the British government’s plans to finally convert its power consumption from non-renewable to clean and affordable energy. With the help of Danish company DONG Energy, the world’s largest operator of offshore wind farms, this project would cost almost $8 billion. Around 1960 construction jobs and 500 maintenance jobs would be available by the time the project starts.

The British government wants to provide energy for millions of people by providing a total estimate of 20 GW of offshore wind by late 2020s.  According to Greg Clark, the Business Energy Secretary, “Britain is a global leader in offshore wind, and we’re determined to be one of the leading destinations for investment in renewable energy, which means jobs and economic growth right across the country.”
