The world's biggest offshore wind farm has been given the go-ahead off the East Yorkshire coast.

Dong Energy was awarded a contract for Hornsea Project Two in a government auction for low-carbon subsidies.

At 1,386 megawatts, it will outstrip Dong's Hornsea Project One, under construction as the world's biggest offshore wind farm.

Triton Knoll near Lincolnshire and Moray East near Scotland also secured government subsidies in the auction.

Hornsea Project Two is due to be complete by 2022 and could power more than 1.3 million UK homes.

 

It will be located in the North Sea 55 miles (89 km) off the coast of Bridlington.

Dong Energy said the guaranteed "strike" price won in the contract, of £57.50 per megawatt hour, is the lowest ever price for UK offshore wind.
