The farm consists of 30 wind turbines, each with three 40-metre (130 ft) blades rotating around a centre-point some 60 metres (200 ft) above the mean sea level on hollow 4.5 metres (14.8 ft) diameter steel masts, in from 13-to-20-metre (43 to 66 ft) depth of water. The masts are piled up to 30 metres (98 ft) into the sea bed, to provide stability on a substrate of shifting sands.
The wind turbines were designed and manufactured by a Danish firm, Vestas. Each turbine has a capacity of 2 megawatts. Turbines were installed by the Danish offshore wind farms services provider A2SEA.
There are also many seals living there, some of which will swim up to boats and others which enjoy basking on the beach. To the average human passing in a boat it is not difficult to understand how the legends concerning the selkie-folk — the seal people — began. The selkie-men (the male seals) are known for their frequent encounters with human females — both married and unmarried.
