Denmark’s Dong Energy and Iberdrola’s subsidiary ScottishPower Renewables have stepped up their collaborative effort to install a mega capacity wind farm off the shore of Irish Sea. Named as the West of Duddon Sands wind farm, the project will encompass a whopping 108, 3.6 wind turbines supplied by Siemens. The 389-MW capacity grand project will incur a humongous cost of $2.56 billion with construction to be started in 2013. Specially made installation vessels would aid in the ambitious building process, so as to accentuate upon the efficiency of construction during all seasons. But the actual productivity (power generation) of the farm will be around 374 MW, taking into account the conventional transmission losses.
