World’s largest offshore wind farm set to launch in UK by end of 2021

December 17, 2021

First power from the 1,386 MW Hornsea Two, soon to be the world’s largest offshore wind farm, is expected before the end of the year, a spokesperson for Ørsted told offshore WIND.

139 of the wind farm’s 165 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW wind turbines have now been installed, and all of the wind farms inter-array cables are now in place, the spokesperson said.

Along with the 165 wind turbines, Hornsea Two also comprises an offshore substation, and a reactive compensation station (RCS).

The wind farm’s transmission system is now being finalized, with the final export cable pulled into the wind farm’s RCS in November, according to Ørsted’s spokesperson.
