E.ON to decommission UK's 1st offshore wind farm

E.ON SE is decommissioning a 4-MW offshore wind farm in the U.K., as the two-turbine facility has reached the end of its technical lifespan.

The Blyth facility was the U.K.'s first ever offshore wind farm, built off the Northumberland coast in 2000 by a consortium including E.ON. "The legacy of the first British offshore wind farm is a test area in the Blyth region for the construction, operation and maintenance of offshore wind farms. This hub for innovation at sea is a starting point which has seen the U.K. subsequently develop into a world leader in offshore wind," the German utility said in a March 12 statement.

The company will begin the dismantling work in April and expects to finish the task in four to six weeks. One turbine will be recycled for spare parts for E.ON's onshore fleet, while the other turbine will be used for training purposes by the port of Blyth.
