Humber Gateway wind farm substations arrive in UK

Two substations have arrived by ship at the Port of Sunderland in the UK from Belgium as part of the Humber Humber gateway substationGateway offshore wind farm project.

The 219 MW Humber Gateway has been given planning consent and will be built by E.On 8km off England’s East Yorkshire coast and will comprise 73 turbines.

A key part of the project will be the connection of the wind farm to the national grid onshore.

The two 600 tonne substations (pictured) arrived at Sunderland via barge and were transported on self-propelled trailers to a temporary base at the port where they will stay for six to 12 months before being shipped to the wind farm site.
