Project Description

Field where Substation Expansion will be sited

Heysham 132kV Substation is an outdoor site located 1.4 miles inland from the west coast and just south of Morecambe Bay. The project starts on 20th September 2010 and will run for 14 weeks on 2010 and 4 weeks in April 2011. At Heysham, the Ormonde Offshore Wind Farm is connected to the National Grid. The grid connection requires cables to be buried underground from Halfmoon Bay to the substation.
The Ormonde Offshore Wind Farm is currently being built in the Irish Sea, 10km off Barrow-In-Furness. On completion the wind farm will comprise 30 RePower 5M wind turbines with the capacity of 150 Megawatts and expected to produce around 500 Gigawatt hours of electricity every year.
