DONG Energy will start construction of the 660 MW Walney Extension wind farm in Cumbria next week with the initial installation work on the seabed. To mark the launch, the developer has allocated 300.000 GBP to support and develop the commercial fishery in the eastern Irish Sea.

"As a company operating on the sea, we are totally committed to working with fishing communities to ensure that we contribute positive contribution in the areas where our activities are based," says Benj Sykes, UK Country Manager at DONG Energy.

The fund will be available for applications from fishermen in the area, and it will be managed and administered by the independent, non-profit company West of Morecambe Fisheries.

The project, which is next to the 367,2 MW Walney 1 and 2 wind farms, will be the largest wind farm in the world when it is built and is expected to generate electricity in 2019. The final investment decision for Walney Extension, about 19 kilometers off the coast, is decided in October 2015.

The wind farm will consist of 40 8 MW MHI Vestas and 47 7 MW Siemens turbines. Van Oord is hired to transport and install the 87 foundations on site, and jack-up vessel Seajacks Scylla to transport and install the turbines. Inter-array cables will be installed by VBMS and subsea export cables will be laid by the Deep Ocean chartered Maersk Connector.
