    Fiona Harvey, February 6, 2016 (The Guardian)

    “…[The world’s biggest offshore wind farm will be built off the UK’s] northeast coast…Dong Energy said its multi-billion pound Hornsea project, which is expected to power as many as 1 million homes in the region when complete, will occupy more than 400 square kilometers…off the Yorkshire coast…[ Denmark’s state-backed energy utility,] which has already put £6 billon into wind power in the U.K., said this was its largest investment in offshore wind to date…An estimated 2,000 jobs will be created for the construction of the project, with a further 300 jobs likely to be created for its operation…The 1.2GW Hornsea project will be made up of 7MW wind turbines, the largest generally available, each more than 190m high…Dong is planning to have them built at a factory in Hull owned by Siemens, the German industrial giant…The green light for the Hornsea wind farm is also a boost to three other mooted offshore wind farms that are in the offing…[Offshore wind] requires bigger and more robust turbines, and has higher levels of maintenance and much greater installation costs than onshore wind [but also has higher levels of productivity and avoids local resistance]…” click here for more
