This amazing video shows ambitious plans to build an artificial island off East Yorkshire’s coast. An artificial island could be built off the East Yorkshire coast as part of plans to build a huge offshore wind farm. Dutch energy network TenneT aims to create the island to act as a hub for vast offshore windfarm at Dogger Bank, once a thriving fishing ground for Hull’s fishing fleet, which is 78 miles off the Holderness coast. The power hub would send electricity over a long-distance cable to the UK and Netherlands, and possibly later to Belgium, Germany, and Denmark. TenneT, the project’s backer and Dutch equivalent of the UK’s National Grid, believes its plan could be billions of euros cheaper than conventional windfarms and international power cables.
