World’s Biggest Wind Farm in the middle of the Irish Sea Opened

The world’s biggest offshore wind farm was officially opened  after record-fast construction in the middle of the Irish Sea. The 102 turbines of the two connected  farms cover an area of 73 square-kilometres . With a capacity of 367.2MW, the huge project can provide low-carbon, green electricity to 320,000 homes. The generating capacity of each turbine, supplied by Siemens Wind Power, is 3.6MW.

According to Wikipedia ,a wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used to produce electric power. A large wind farm may consist of several hundred individual wind turbines, and cover an extended area of hundreds of square miles, but the land between the turbines may be used for agricultural or other purposes. A wind farm may also be located offshore.
