Arteche supplies instrument transformers world’s biggest wind farm

Arteche will supply Instrument Transformers for Walney Extension, the world’s biggest wind farm, with 660 MW capacity. This offshore wind farm, expected to be completed by 2019, will provide enough power for over 460.000 British homes.

Arteche will supply 145 and 420 kV Instrument Transformers for the substations that will connect the wind farm, located approximately 20 kilometers off the cost of Cumbria, in the Irish Sea, with the grid.

Situated near the existing Walney Offshore Wind Farm, this extension will comprise up to 90 turbines –190 and 222 meters tall–, and will cover a 145 km2 area.
