Racebank Project

Location: North Norfolk Coast

Category: Offshore Windparks

Category: Transmission and Distribution

Race Bank can generate 573 megawatts (MW) of green electricity from its 91 Siemens Gamesa 6 MW wind turbines. Many of these turbines feature the first blades to be manufactured at the Siemens Gamesa blade factory in Hull. The wind farm is located off the North Norfolk coast and is operated from Ørsted’s East Coast Hub in Grimsby, the UK’s largest offshore wind Operations and Maintenance (O&M) base. The project features a new way of carrying out offshore maintenance, using a state-of-the-art Service Operation Vessel (SOV) that remains offshore with technicians working shifts of 14 days on and 14 days off.
