Wind Turbine at Shoreham
Wind Turbine at Shoreham
The turbines which were installed over the summer, are located on the revetment by the Portís Outer Layby and are now providing electricity directly to the Pump House. The turbines will be capable of generating on average 550,000kWh of electricity per year and were selected to match the energy demands of the pumps. The pumps are the biggest single user of electricity and are critical to Port operations. They are used at various times of the day and night to replenish the water lost to the sea when the lock gates are opened.

The two turbines consist of a three-bladed rotor, 22m in diameter, supported by a 24.5m tubular monopole, making the overall height to the tip 35.5 metres. This compares with the 30 metre high lighting towers and the 106 metre high power station chimney nearby on the Port and also the 140m tall turbines currently being installed off-shore.
