Hornsea 1 Offshore wind farm - PFA

The Hornsea 1 offshore wind farm will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world. Once officially opened in 2020, it will produce enough energy to power over 1 million homes.

With a capacity of 1.2 gigawatts (GW), Hornsea One will be the world's first offshore wind farm to exceed 1 GW in capacity.

Located off the Yorkshire coast, Hornsea One will span a huge area of approximately 407 square kilometres, which is over five times the size of the city of Hull. The offshore wind farm will use 7 megawatt (MW) wind turbines, with each one 190 metres tall – larger than the Gherkin building in London.
