More detail here:  https://renews.biz/51423/turbine-triumph-at-hornsea-1/

First turbine install done today, 2 monopoles left to install and cabling already in situ for 116 of the 174 turbines.  Sounds like they are installing it at a rapid pace.

I'm slightly confused. Does a windfarm come online incrementally, or all at once. As I read it, only a couple of the turbines are complete, the rest going in over this suummer. So as each turbine is finshed does it start up and generate?

These days, each turbine in a windfarm starts to deliver electricity as soon as it is completed. It must improve the economics of the project.

Thanks. I'd sort of assumed the other way round, or at least in phase/batches.
