With many people opposed to wind farm development on land, offshore is the obvious solution. Technically it is far more difficult and expensive to develop such infrastructure. I have been documenting the construction of The Walney offshore wind farm, sighted some 12 miles off Barrow in Furness in Cumbria, UK. The wind farm consists of 102, 3.6 MW turbines, giving a total installed capacity of 367.2MW, enough to power 320,000 homes. The site is being developed by the Danish energy company, Dong.
