Barrow (UK)

The Barrow Offshore Wind Farm is a 30 turbine 90MW capacity offshore wind power plant in the East Irish Sea approximately 7 kilometres south west of Walney Island, near Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, England. Annual production is around 305 GW/h, enough to meet the demand of around 65,000 British households.

Electricity generated by the wind farm is delivered to the National Grid at a substation in Heysham, Lancashire via 27km of buried subsea transmission and onshore cables.

Barrow was part of the UK Round 1 wind farm development, and was completed in 2006. Turbine to offshore substation electric connection is at 33kV, with the voltage stepped up to 132kV at an offshore substation.
