East Coast UK Wind Farm: Final Turbine Installed

Lincolnshire Echo
Thursday, April 04, 2013

The 75th and final turbine has been installed at the Lincs Offshore Wind Farm.

The installation marks a major milestone in the development of the 270MW project, which will be capable of producing enough energy to meet the annual power needs of more than 200,000 households – equivalent to two thirds of the homes in Lincolnshire, reports the Lincolnshire Echo.

Construction of the project, located eight kilometres (five miles) off the coast of Skegness, started in 2010 with full commissioning expected later this year.

Lincs is a joint venture between leading UK energy company Centrica Energy, DONG Energy and Siemens Project Ventures. When complete it will be managed from Centrica’s new operations and maintenance base in Grimsby, which was opened last year as a major new hub for the business.
