LONDON (Reuters) - A new 367 megawatt offshore wind farm opened off the Cumbrian coast in Britain Thursday and will supply up to 320,000 households with renewable power a year, the companies behind the project said.

The 1 billion pound ($1.58 billion) Walney wind farm is a joint venture between utilities DONG Energy, SSE and OPW, a consortium of the Dutch pension fund service provider PGGM and Ampere Equity Fund.

The companies claim Walney is the world's biggest offshore windfarm, with 102 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3.6 MW.
