Result from the successful completion of tests, renewable energy business Orsted’s Scramble Bank Offshore Wind Farm is fully up and running and can generate its busty capacity of 573 megawatts.
The facility is spread over an area of 75 kilometers squared off the east shore of England. It is made up of 91 Siemens Gamesa turbines and can generate ample supply electricity to power 500,000 U.K. homes per year, the Denmark-headquartered business state.
“Not only have we achieved full power on schedule, but we have also done so safely, without compromising our strident standards,” David Summers, project director for Race Bank at Orsted U.K., voted Thursday. Summers added that he looked forward to officially job the project this summer.
According to authorities, the U.K. has the world’s largest offshore about capacity. The Race Bank facility is 50 percent owned by Orsted. The Macquarie European Infrastructure Back 5 has a 25 percent share, while Macquarie Capital and the Sumitomo Corporation each has a 12.5 percent stake.
