Vattenfall announces plan for new British offshore wind farm

Obstacles, which stood in the way of an almost abandoned offshore wind farm, have now been overcome, prompting Sweden's Vattenfall to target a project twice the original size with the installation of giant turbines.

In 2010, Vattenfall constructed the largest offshore wind farm at the time with 300 MW across 100 Vestas turbines. Now, the Swedish company plans to build a larger farm but with just a third as many turbines. | Photo: Jamie Cook

At the end of this month, Vattenfall will partake in a series of discussion sessions with the local population in the southeast British city Kent. They will meet to discuss the best route for a submarine cable leading to a new offshore wind farm. The Swedish company seems to have finally made its ultimate decision regarding the construction of an extension farm for the 300 MW Vestas farm Thanet.

This is evident in the energy company's January newsletter.
