Iberdrola has hooked up the East Anglia One offshore wind farm to the British electricity grid. It is building the facilities in the North Sea, around 50 kilometres from the coast of the county of Suffolk, in the UK, and it is scheduled to go into operation next year.
The first of 102 wind turbines, the so-called WTG E19, has already supplied clean power to the land substation in Burstall. Its subsidiary, ScottishPower Renewables, which installed 25 turbines on the site this summer, will gradually connect them to the grid. With an investment of approximately GBP 2.5 billion and covering an area of 300 km2, the East Anglia One has a total capacity of 714MW.
