    Ørsted: Photo exhibition explores the construction of the worlds largest offshore wind farm


    May 23, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      Ørsted will be presenting a free photography exhibition at the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre between the 01 and 26 of June. The exhibition will focus on the construction of Hornsea 2, soon to be the world's biggest offshore wind farm and Ørsted's 13th offshore wind farm in UK waters. The exhibition will provide a fascinating look behind the scenes at Hornsea 2, and what it takes to install 165 wind turbines and then connect them to the National Grid. Located 89km off the Yorkshire coast, this feat of planning and construction spans an offshore area of 462km² - equal to 66,000 times the size of Blundell Park, home of Grimsby Town F.C. When complete, it will provide enough clean power for 1.3 million homes.

      Original Press Release:

      May 23 -- Orsted issued the following news release:

      Ørsted will be presenting a free photography exhibition at the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre between the 01 and 26 of June. The exhibition will focus on the construction of Hornsea 2, soon to be the world's biggest offshore wind farm and Ørsted's 13th offshore wind farm in UK waters.

      The exhibition will provide a fascinating look behind the scenes at Hornsea 2, and what it takes to install 165 wind turbines and then connect them to the National Grid.

      Located 89km off the Yorkshire coast, this feat of planning and construction spans an offshore area of 462km² - equal to 66,000 times the size of Blundell Park, home of Grimsby Town F.C. When complete, it will provide enough clean power for 1.3 million homes.

      The Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre is a great location to show how the town’s relationship with the Humber and the North Sea has changed over the years, and to celebrate the local people who are now helping to create a world that runs entirely on green energy.

      Patrick Harnett, programme director for Hornsea 2, at Ørsted said: "It's wonderful to take a step back and reflect on some of the challenges and achievements we've experienced while building Hornsea 2. When you're in the thick of construction, it's easy to forget the sheer scale and complexity of what you're doing, but seeing the story unfold in photographs makes me incredibly proud of what we have achieved.

      “I hope this exhibition will give the people of Grimsby and visitors to the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre a better understanding of what we've been doing over the past few years, as well as a how an offshore wind farm comes together."

      David Ornsby, operations manager of Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre said, "We’re delighted to work with Ørsted to host this new exhibition in our Café Gallery. Grimsby has a wonderful heritage, pioneering some world-changing engineering achievements. This fascinating exhibition shows that this ambitious spirit is by no means only in the past.”

      The exhibition is open from 10am-4pm Tuesday to Sunday, including bank holidays.
