DONG Energy picks Vestas to supply turbines for UK project
Danish manufacturer Vestas has been chosen by DONG Energy to supply turbines for an extension of a wind farm in Liverpool Bay.
The Burbo Bank offshore wind farm currently consists of 25 turbines, with a total capacity of 90MW and an expected annual output of 315 million kWh. The extension will add 258MW, generating enough clean electricity to power up to 170,000 households. Vestas will supply its 8MW turbines (pictured) which follows an agreement in 2012 that the two firms would co-operate on the testing of the prototypes.
