In April 2018, Ørsted and Balfour Beatty started the construction of the onshore substation in North Killingholme.

The project’s 39km onshore cable route runs from Horseshoe Point, east of Tetney, to the substation site which is adjacent to the Hornsea Project One onshore substation. 

Hornsea Two will comprise 165 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW turbines mounted on monopile foundations some 89km north-east of Grimsby.

The 1.4 GW offshore wind project is scheduled to be commissioned in 2022.
