Ed Davey today opened the world’s biggest offshore windfarm near Walney in Cumbria which has 102 turbines. The £1billion farm is owned by DONG Energy, energy supplier SSE and dutch-owned consortium OPW.

The new Energy Secretary said: “Opening Walney during my first week in office lets me underline my commitment to continuing the Coalition’s work to make this sector a success story for the British economy, not least with the innovation it is driving and the employment it is creating.”
