According to A2SEA, the fourth wind turbine was installed in the Race Bank offshore wind farm in Great Britain on Friday May 19. Race Bank received its first turbine on May 9 and shortly after, the first electricity was delivered to the national electricity grid.

The Sea Installer team still needs to install an additional 87 of the total of 91 Siemens 6 MW turbines included in the project. Later in the year, some of the turbines will be equipped with the first wings being manufactured at Siemens Wing Factory in Hull. About two thirds of the wings for Race Bank come from the Hull factory.

Construction of the wind farm is controlled by DONG Energy's construction facility in Grimsby Fish Docks. When the park is in full operation in 2018, Race Bank will be able to generate 573 MW of electricity, enough power to supply over half a million British households.
