Dong generates first power from Race Bank

Electricity has begun to flow from Dong Energy's offshore wind farm Race Bank, where the first turbines are now up and running.

The first turbines at Dong's offshore wind farm Race Bank, which lies off the coast of Norfolk in north-eastern England, have begun spinning.

Altogether, Race Bank will consist of 91 Siemens 6 MW wind turbines, making it the first offshore wind farm in the world to use blades from Siemens' wind factory in Hull, UK. The blades are expected to be installed later in the year. Approximately a third – 180 – of the blades will be installed at Race Bank, which comes from Siemens' production plant at Hull.
