The Walney Offshore Windfarm project is located 15km off Barrow in Furness in Cumbria. The project consists of Walney 1 and Walney 2 each with 51 turbines. When finished it will have 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 wind farm is owned and constructed by Dong Energy. This shot shows the transformer substation that connects all the electric cable from each turbine, before sending the electricity ashore, as well as offshore support and cable laying vessels.
