Iberdrola, through its subsidiary ScottishPower Renewables, has put into operation the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm in British waters in the North Sea. With an installed capacity of 714MW, the 102 turbines that comprise it are already operational, producing clean energy for 630,000 British homes.
East Anglia ONE is fully operational, after an investment of £2.5 billion and the generation of 3,500 jobs during its construction. These are in addition to the 100 permanent jobs generated for the operation and maintenance of the park at the Lowestoft base on the east coast of the UK.
Following the launch of the East Anglia ONE, Iberdrola now has its sights set on the East Anglia HUB, which comprises three projects with a total capacity of 3,100MW: East Anglia ONE North, East Anglia TWO and East Anglia THREE. The development of this complex, which is scheduled to start in 2022, will require an investment of £6.5 billion. The three farms will be developed simultaneously.
