Proposed Offshore Wind for UK

The Associated Press reported here (9/12/03) on plans by British energy group Centrica to build a wind farm in the Irish Sea for about $160 million in collaboration with two Scandinavian power companies. According to the article, up to 30 turbines (90 MW capacity) will be erected 5 miles off the northwest coast near the town of Barrow. Centrica said it has gone into partnership with Danish energy group DONG and the Norwegian power company Statkraft for the project. The three companies have jointly bought Barrow Offshore Wind, the company which owns the rights to develop the site.
