UK wind demonstration farm gets green light.

Leigh Stringer

Manufacturers and developers of wind turbines will be able to study construction methods, issues with the supply change, maintenance and more once the UK's largest offshore wind demonstration site is completed.

The UK's National Renewable Energy Centre (Narec) has been given the green light to construct a grid of 15 turbines off the coast of Northumberland. Permission has also been given by the Northumberland County Council for Narec to build onshore supporting infrastructure. 

The project is the first large-scale deep water demonstration site in the UK to be granted both offshore permits and onshore consent and according to Narec, is a "pivotal strand" in helping to lower the costs associated with offshore wind farms.

Part 1 of the site will be completed in 2015.
