About The Project

HCP has been engaged to manage services for the HoldCo in the operational phase of the project having already assisted the investors through the signing of the deal and in reaching financial close.
The Walney Extension Offshore Wind Farm is located in the Irish Sea approximately 19km from the Walney Island coast in Cumbria, off the North-West coast of England. The area covered is 145 km2 in total or roughly the area of 20,000 football pitches.

The Extension project delivers 659MW, enough to power up more than 590,000 UK homes. It will be made up of 87 wind turbines, using both Siemens 7MW turbines and MHI Vestas 8.25MW turbines. The project achieved first power in October and remains under construction and is expected to be commissioned mid-2018. The project benefits from the UK CfD subsidy mechanism.
