Wind power giants aim for 6,000MW in UK

Wind power giants aim for 6,000MW in UK
ScottishPower Renewables and Vatenfall have formed a partnership which aims to develop an installed wind power capacity of 6,000 megawatts (MW) by 2020.

The partnership will make applications to the third round of tender bids to develop offshore wind power to the Crown Estate.

ScottishPower Renewables is part of the world's largest wind power operator Iberdrola Renovables, and operates 550MW of wind capacity in the UK and Ireland.

Iberdrola Renovables chief executive Xabier Viteri said: "Combining the experience and knowledge of Vattenfall and ScottishPower Renewables will create an extremely strong and successful partnership. Round three is very important part of the UK's renewable aspirations and this consortium has the skills and determination to play a key role in this process."

According to the British Wind Energy Agency, there are already 2,136 wind turbines in the UK with a total capacity of about 2,753MW, enough to power the equivalent of 1,539,094 homes.
