Major construction activity at the 630 MW Phase 1 of London Array was completed in December 2012 with the wind farm on track to be fully operational in Spring 2013. Once completed, London Array will become the largest operational wind farm in the world.
Construction work at the 389 MW West of Duddon Sands wind farm off the coast of Lancashire, a 50/50 joint venture with our partner ScottishPower Renewables, will begin in 2013 and is expected to be completed during 2014.
