E.ON’s Humber Gateway offshore wind farm is fully generating electricity – two months ahead of schedule.

The 219MW project, located 8km off the Holderness coast, produced electricity for the first time in February and the final turbine was installed in April.

The wind farm has 73 turbines and will provide enough electricity for around 170,000 homes, according to E.ON.

Melanie Onn, Labour MP for Great Grimsby, said: “Wind and other renewable energy is where the future lies for Grimsby and the Humber Gateway project has already provided permanent jobs for local people as well as work for local contractors.”
