World’s Largest Wind Farm Has 1st (& 2nd) Turbine Up
February 7th, 2012 by Zachary Shahan
What will likely become the world’s largest wind farm now has its first two turbines up. In total, 175 of the 3.6-MW Siemens offshore wind turbines totaling 630 MW are to be installed by the end of 2012. That’s phase 1. After phase 2 is complete, the total power capacity of the wind farm will be 1,000 MW (or 1 GW). Can you guess where this giant project is?
If you said the UK, you’re right. The London Array offshore wind farm is going up in the Thames Estuary. The first wind turbines should start producing power in March. As you can see if you click the link above, this project has been in the works for years now. So, it’s great to see it finally getting some turbines up!
