The London Array

London Array is the world’s largest offshore wind farm and was formally opened by the Prime Minister David Cameron in July 2013. It can generate enough energy to meet the annual need of half a million UK homes or two thirds of the households in Kent and displace 925,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

The scheme is located around 20km from the Kent and Essex coasts in the outer Thames estuary. It is connected by undersea cables to a new onshore substation at Cleve Hill, on the North Kent coast. From the substation, the electricity is fed directly into the existing 400 kV National Grid transmission network. View a video of the construction of the substation

The construction of the offshore wind farm is now complete and consists of 175 Siemens 3.6MW turbines with a total installed capacity of 630MW. An operations and maintenance base has been established at the Port of Ramsgate in East Kent. View a 3D animation of London Array.

With the substantial growth of offshore wind within the Thames Estuary and off the East Coast ongoing opportunities exist for local organisations that have the skills and expertise relevant to the offshore wind sector. This business directory helps wind farm developers to identify local companies who can provide products and services for use in the development, construction and operation of their projects, now and in the future.

London Array Limited is a consortium of three world-leading renewable energy companies: E.ON, DONG Energy and Masdar – and La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (Caisse), a global investor and one of the largest institutional fund managers in Canada and North America.
