Wind Energy

Take a look at the world’s largest offshore wind farm project

The Walney Extension, a Danish-led and funded project in the Irish Sea off Cumbria, is capable of generating 695 megawatts, enough green energy to power around 600,000 homes. The windfarm is nearly 12 miles (19km) off Walney Island, Barrow-in-Furness, and covers an area of 56 square miles (145 sq km) – equal to around 20,000 football pitches. Walney Extension overtakes the current largest operational wind farm, London Array, off the Kent coast in the Thames Estuary.
