Commissioning of final turbine completes world’s largest offshore wind farm


The 175th and final wind turbine was installed at the London Array offshore wind farm in December of 2012, but was finally commissioned this week, which not only finalises the end of major construction activities but also confirms the London Array’s position as world’s largest offshore wind farm.

The installation of the 175 wind turbines started back in January of 2012, and has been completed by MPI Discovery, A2SEA’s Sea Worker and Sea Jack.

“This is the final major milestone of the construction phase and the culmination of more than two years’ offshore construction work which began in March 2011 with the installation of the first foundation,” said Project Director Richard Rigg.

“It has been a complex operation but I am delighted that the commissioning of the wind farm has now been completed on schedule, despite the worst of the winter weather.”
