The Danish company Orsted A/S opened the world’s largest offshore wind farm yesterday.

What do you need to know about it? It’s called the Walney Extension, it’s off the northwest coast of England, and it’s massive.

Imagine 47 of these…

…plus 40 more Siemens turbines (505 ft. high) generating electricity across an area equivalent to 20,000 soccer fields, or double the size of Manhattan.

More specs:

  • The Walney Extension is 50% owned by Orsted, with the other 50% split between two Danish pension funds.
  • The project is able to power 590,000 homes in the U.K., which is a leader in the offshore wind sector. The country operates over 1,800 offshore wind turbines.
