Caption: Dong Energy are building the Walney offshore wind farm, off the Cumbrian coast, UK. When finished the farm will consist of 102, 3.6 MW turbines, giving a total capacity of the Walney project of 367.2 MW, enough to power 320,000 homes. The rotor diameter of the turbines is 107m for Walney 1 and 120 m for Walney 2. The turbines are shipped into the UK and stored at Mostyn port in North Wales. From here they are picked up by a jack up barge, that sails out to the construction site to build the turbines. This shot shows the nose cones with the specialist lifting pieces in the foreground.
