Offshore windfarm, Skegness
A close-up of six of the wind turbines off the East Coast at Skegness; the stumps of three as-yet unconstructed towers can also be seen. For a wider view see TF5762 : Skegness, beach and windfarm
Note: The Lynn Offshore Windfarm covers (or will cover) an area of 10kmē which means it will spread over at least 10 gridsquares. I have located these six in TF5962 based on photographer's position and view direction, but they may be in any neighbouring gridsquare, or straddle several squares.
Here is some data for the Lynn O/S Windfarm once it is completed:
27 Turbines each with a 107m rotor diameter; the hub of the rotor is 80m above sea level, and the highest point of the rotor is at 134m asl.
The rated rotor revolution speed (at a rated wind speed of 13.5 m/s) is 13rpm resulting in a tip velocity of 72.8 m/s (163mph) and the rated power per turbine is 3.6MW
The turbines can operate at wind speeds between 4 m/s and 25 m/s which equates to a range from a Gentle Breeze (Force 3) through a Strong Gale (Force 9). The 25 m/s cut-off speed is just into Storm Force (10) which has a lower wind speed value of 24.5 m/s.
