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 huge blades, the serrations help to control the air flow over the blade for greater efficiency and extra power.
