Off the coast of great Britain earned the world's largest wind farm

Off the coast of Cumbria, in the North-West of England, earned the world's largest wind farm. A new wind farm launched because of fears that a British exit from the EU may have a negative impact on the development of the energy sector. Walney Extension power, the largest wind farm in the world, is 659 MW. It generated enough energy to power the 590 000 homes.

The Wind farm covers an area equivalent to 20,000 football fields (approximately 142 thousand m2) and runs on 87 wind turbines.

"the UK is a world leader in the production of coastal wind power and run Walney Extension only proves that fact," — commented Matthew Wright, managing Director of the British division of the Danish Ørsted, the company that developed draft wind power.

"the Project is fully commissioned, has not gone beyond the calculated budget and represents another important step for the company Ørsted in her quest translation around the world on renewable sources of energy."

Despite the fact that the Walney Extension is currently the largest wind farm in the world, this title is long she couldn't even hold. In 2020 in the East of England plan to complete the construction of another wind farm East Anglia One, the capacity of which will amount to 714 MW. The building will be occupied by ScottishPower. Another project of the company of the Danish Ørsted, Hornsea Project One, involves the construction of a power plant of 1200 MW. In addition, the Yorkshire coast is also planned the construction of power stations with a capacity of 1800 MW. The station should earn somewhere in 2022. According to experts, it can feed up to 1.8 million homes.

According to the latest figures, wind power plants produce almost 1/10 of the whole consumption of the Kingdom's electricity.
