So far 25 turbines have been fully constructed. Once complete, East Anglia ONE will produce 714 MW of clean energy for the UK, enough to power over 630,000 homes. Engineers have already started commissioning further turbines and more power will come online at regular intervals, says developer ScottishPower Renewables.

Each 7 MW Siemens Gamesa wind turbine consists of three, 75-metre fibre glass blades, a 90 metre-high tower and a nacelle. All of the turbines will be installed and operational in 2020.

Charlie Jordan, East Anglia ONE Project Director, said: “First power being generated at East Anglia ONE is a huge achievement. We are continuing to progress towards completion of the offshore windfarm and reaching this point is down to the incredible efforts of everyone involved, from local contractors and employees through to national and international businesses. We’ve worked hard to get to this point and look forward to continuing to work together to bring each turbine online. Once operational, East Anglia ONE will produce clean energy the UK needs, whilst also providing long-term jobs and opportunities to the people and businesses of East Anglia both now and in the future.”

Ed Northam, head of GIG in the UK and Europe, said: “First power is always an important milestone for any project and I congratulate the Scottish Power Renewables team working on the project from Great Yarmouth. This is an important project for Suffolk, and the UK, and we look forward to the day when all 102 state-of-the art turbines are producing green power.”
