The Walney Extension offshore wind farm is located in the Irish Sea, approximately 19 km off the Walney Island coast in Cumbria. The wind farm will consist of 87 wind turbines: 40 Vestas and 47 Siemens wind turbines with a total capacity of 660 MW.
Van Oord will transport the foundations, monopiles and transition pieces from the various suppliers in Denmark, Germany and the United Kingdom and then install the foundations at the offshore wind farm site. The installation work will start in spring 2017 and it is expected to be ready in 2018.
