World's largest offshore wind farm Hornsea Two now generating electricity

Project developer Ørsted reports another success: Hornsea Two, located 89 km off the British east coast, has generated electricity for the first time.

When Hornsea Two is fully operational, Siemens Gamesa's 165 8 MW wind turbines will be capable of generating 1.32 GW of clean electricity. As a result, Hornsea Two will take over the title of "largest operating offshore wind farm in the world" from its sister project, Hornsea One. Together, the two projects will be able to provide enough electricity to power well over 2.3 million homes.

Meanwhile, two other projects in the Hornsea zone are already underway, with Hornsea Three receiving development consent in December 2020 and Hornsea Four currently going through the planning process. Taken together, the projects would make a significant contribution to the U.K. government's goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

Patrick Harnett, Programme Director for Hornsea Two, said: “Achieving first power is an important milestone for the project and a proud moment for the whole team. Constructing a project of this size and scale is only possible through strong collaboration, hard work and dedication. From here, we have the finish line in sight as we install the remaining turbines and continue testing, commissioning and energising our wind farm into the New Year. A huge well done to everyone who has worked through the pandemic to keep the project on track.”
