Iberdrola Nears Completion of $2.6 Billion Offshore Wind Farm

Iberdrola SA’s ScottishPower unit is nearing completion of a 389-megawatt offshore wind project.

The 1.6 billion-pound ($2.6 billion) wind farm will be ready to start full commercial operations in the next few weeks, Andrew Turpin, a spokesman, said by phone. Work on final commissioning is ongoing, he said.

The wind farm, able to produce enough power for about 300,000 homes, is about 14 kilometers (9 miles) off Barrow-in-Furness in northern England. Dong Energy A/S is joint venture partner in the project.
