Merseyside wind farm: The ‘World’s biggest wind turbines’

Thirty Two new wind turbines started to generate electricity yesterday in Liverpool Bay (17th May 2017). It has been reported that these new wind turbines located just of the Merseyside coast are thought to be the largest in the world.

The Danish company Dong Energy have just finished installing the turbines in Liverpool Bay that are taller than the Gherkin skyscraper, with blades longer than nine London buses and could potentially produce enough electricity to power a medium-sized town.

Each of the 195m tall turbines in this Burbo Bank windfarm extension has more than twice the power capacity of those in the neighbouring Burbo Bank windfarm completed a decade ago.
