The two-turbine 4MW Blyth project, the first offshore wind farm (OWF) built in UK waters has been decommissioned by E.ON. The Blyth OWF features two 2MW turbines commissioned in December 2000, which were at that time the most powerful units.
According to E.ON, wind farms usually have a lifespan of 20-25 years and Blyth has reached the end of its time. One turbine is expected to be recycled and reused for spare parts within E.ON’s onshore wind project, with the other to be used by the Port of Blyth for training purposes.
E.ON UK Renewables developed Blyth in a consortium with Shell Renewables, Nuon UK and AMEC Wind.
