A new offshore wind power plant is due to be completed by the beginning of 2018. Headed up by Dong Energy, the market leader in offshore wind, a total of 91 turbines, supplied by Siemens, will be installed in the Spring of 2017.
The Race Bank plant which will be located 16.8 miles off the North Norfolk coasts and 17.4 miles off the Lincolnshire coast will cover an area of 29 square miles.
It is anticipated that this development will lead to investments in the area as local suppliers are invited to tender for services and components. In addition, it will play its part in helping to drive down the cost of electricity produced by offshore wind farms.
