Race Bank 1 is a substation destined for the Race Bank wind farm.
Race Bank Wind Farm is a 573 MW Round 2 offshore wind farm located 27 km north of Blakeney Point off the coast of Norfolk, and 28 km east of Chapel St Leonards off the Lincolnshire coast in the North Sea. The farm was commissioned in February 2018.
A substation is the central element of an offshore wind farm. It is surrounded by windmills and it is connected via a cable with several strings of windmills in the park. The by the windmills generated power (33 kV) is transported to the substation where it is converted to 220 kV for transportation to onshore via two main cables.
