In February 2007, Ormonde Energy Limited (OEL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Vattenfall UK plc, was granted consent from the Secretary of State to develop the Ormonde offshore wind farm project (Ormonde OWF). The Ormonde OWF is located approximately 10 kilometres west of the nearest coastline at Walney Island, Barrow in Furness, Cumbria in approximately 20 metres of water (Figure 1.1). The Ormonde OWF project has consent to construct up to 30 turbines, each of a maximum capacity of 5MW, thus yielding a total potential capacity of 150MW. This document represents the 2010 construction monitoring report for the Ormonde project (i.e. the first year of a 2 year construction programme). The document contains summaries of the results and conclusions from the construction surveys / studies undertaken.
