Orsted A/S: Photo exhibition explores the construction of the world’s largest offshore wind farm

The exhibition will provide a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at Hornsea 2 and what it takes to install 165 wind turbines and then connect them to the national grid.

Located 89km off the Yorkshire coast, this feat of planning and construction spans an offshore area of ​​462km² – 66,000 times the size of Blundell Park, home of Grimsby Town FC. When completed, it will provide enough clean energy for 1.3 million homes.

The Grimsby Fishing Heritage Center is a great place to show how the town’s relationship with the Humber and the North Sea has changed over the years, and to celebrate the locals who are now helping to create a world that works entirely green energy.

Patrick Harnett, program director for Hornsea 2, at Ørsted said: “It’s wonderful to take a step back and reflect on some of the challenges and accomplishments we encountered while building Hornsea 2. When you’re in the thick of the build, it’s easy to forget the scope and complexity of what you ‘do, but seeing the story unfold in the photographs makes me incredibly proud of what we have achieved.

“I hope this exhibition will give the people of Grimsby and visitors to the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Center a better understanding of what we have been doing over the past few years, and how an offshore wind farm comes together.”

David Ornsby, Director of Operations, Grimsby Fishing Heritage Center said: “We are delighted to work with Ørsted to welcome this new exhibition to our Café Gallery. Grimsby has a wonderful heritage, pioneering some world-changing engineering achievements. This fascinating exhibition shows that this ambitious spirit is not by no means only in the past.”

The exhibition is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Sunday, including public holidays.
