There are plans to add a 100 MW test facility of 15 turbines at Blyth and nearby Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, supported by a government grant. The site would be administered by The National Renewable Energy Centre (Narec), based in Blyth. The test facility received planning consent in November 2013. It is planned with the Vestas V164-8MW and 66 kV cables.
