Dong Energy has been awarded a contract to build its Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm by the U.K. government, one of three awards made on Monday.
With a capacity of 1,386MW, enough to power over 1.3 million U.K. homes, Hornsea Project Two will become the world’s biggest wind farm, surpassing the 1,200MW giant Hornsea Project One which Dong Energy is currently constructing. Hornsea Project Two will be built 89 kilometers (55 miles) from the Yorkshire coast and is expected to be operational from 2022 for 25 years.
