Blyth Offshore Windfarm

Permission has been granted for an offshore Windfarm to be built off the coast at Blyth.

The five ( initially ) turbines will be built 6 kilometres ( about 4 miles in old money ) off shore by EDF Energy Renewables.

Construction will begin in 2017 and will involve new "gravity base" foundations, and they will be built at Neptune Drydock on the Tyne.

The operations will be from the Port of Blyth, and the first phase should be finished within a year from the start of construction.

The five turbines will generate enough electricity to power 33,000 homes
