Offshore windfarm plans for Irish Sea

Initial proposals have been submitted for a giant offshore windfarm project between Anglesey and the Isle of Man. Celtic Array, a joint venture between utility firm Centrica and a Danish energy firm, are behind the plans.

The development could see up to 440 wind turbines being sited around nine miles off the Welsh coast, with construction starting in around five years time. It could generate up to 2.2 gigawatts, powering up to around one million homes.
