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.
