STATCOM water cooling equipment of Goaland
The United Kingdom is one of the world's leading country with the most rapid development of offshore wind power. The total installed capacity of offshore wind farms has exceeded 200 million kilowatts, and is expected to reach 10 million kilowatts by the end of 2019. It is expected that in the next 10 years, offshore wind power will account for 17% to 20% of UK's electricity generation.
London Array offshore wind farm in Kent, UK
Located in Liverpool Bay, UK on the east coast of the Irish Sea, the offshore wind farm Burbo Bank originally had an installed capacity of 90MW before it was planned to be expanded to 250MW in 2009. As the newly installed wind turbines will cause the voltage fluctuation of the onshore grid transmission system, a +/-65Mvar STATCOM is designed to control the voltage and provide reactive power before turbine connection. Located in a place near Skegness, 28 km from the coast of Lincolnshire, the ROW01 offshore wind farm with a total capacity of 573.3 MW is designed to add a 120Mvar STATCOM in 2013 to meet the relevant technical requirements for the local wind farm to connect to the grid in the UK.
