UK How to Build a Wind Farm

The Lincs wind farm, located off the Lincolnshire coast, is a joint venture between leading UK energy company Centrica Energy, offshore wind market leader DONG Energy and Siemens Project Ventures.

The last of the wind farm’s 75 wind turbines was connected to the National Grid on Wednesday 24th July, bringing the 270MW project up to full strength for the first time.

Lincs is now capable of producing enough clean renewable energy for over 200,000 homes — equivalent to around two thirds of the homes in Lincolnshire.

Check out this video about all stages of offshore wind farm construction.
