Burbo Bank Extension delivers electricity

For the first time electricity has been produced at DONG Energy's offshore wind farm Burbo Bank Extension. It is the first time that the latest generation, 8 MW offshore wind turbines from Vestas MHI, has been used commercially offshore, and the first electricity is an important step in the project.

"The first electricity is an important milestone for us because it shows that each part of the transmission and production functions. This milestone is significant for the offshore industry in general. The use of these large turbines is an important step in efforts to reduce the cost of energy from offshore wind, and we are proud to be the first to take new technologies into use once again," says Claus Bøjle Møller, Programme Director for Burbo Bank extension.

In the coming weeks, the first offshore wind turbines will produce more and more green power to the British grid. When all 32 turbines are in place, which they are expected to be in the first quarter of 2017, the wind farm could produce up to 258 megawatts of electricity, enough to cover the annual electricity consumption of around 230,000 UK homes.

DONG has worked from Liverpool Bay for a decade. The original Burbo Bank Offshore Wind Farm was inaugurated in 2007 and was the first with turbines of 3.6 MW, which later became widespread throughout the industry. Overall, the two Burbo Bank offshore wind farms produce electricity to cover more than 300,000 households.

The wind farm is owned by a joint venture between DONG Energy (50%) and DONG Energy's partners PKA (25%) and KIRKBI A/S (25%). The construction of Burbo Bank Extension, located 7 km off Liverpool Bay, is undertaken by a team of 90 people working from DONG Energy's facilities in the shipyard Cammel Laird.

Efforts have begun to build an advanced operating and maintenance system worth several million pounds sterling in King's Wharf, Seacombe operating the DONG Energy's offshore wind farms in the area.
