Ørsted’s Hornsea Two site is located 89 km off the coast of
Yorkshire and when complete, will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm
with a capacity of 1.4GW, sufficient to provide clean, sustainable energy to
well over 1.3 million homes.
The event will showcase items which
have been located along the southern section of the cable route which runs from
Horseshoe Point, up to the A46. An additional event will be held for northern section
items in the near future.
