World’s largest wind farms

Masdar’s London Array, one of the world’s largest wind farms, has been helping to power half a million British homes, create jobs, and cut carbon emissions. The offshore facility has brought jobs to Britain’s north Kent coast. It has also helped to shrink the UK’s carbon footprint by generating 630 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy and, displacing 925,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.

London Array was developed with the help of 6,700 workers and more than 75 organizations – the project is a joint venture between Masdar, German firm RWE, Denmark’s Orsted, and Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec, based in Canada. Covering 10,000 hectares of the Thames estuary, which feeds into London’s main river, the facility has created opportunities in the local community.
