Power now flowing from UK's Scroby Sands project
1 August 2004
Electricity is now flowing from the UK's second offshore wind farm at Scroby Sands off Great Yarmouth on England's east coast. Thirty 2 MW turbines are being installed 1.5 kilometres out to sea by Vestas for German-E.ON UK, the British division of German electricity giant E.ON. The first turbine began generating power in the middle of last month and the entire wind power station is expected to be complete and supplying electricity to the national grid by the end of August. "We've been involved with the project for almost a decade," says Jason Scagell from E.ON UK Renewables. "To finally have the first turbine turning is just a great sight."
