To the tip of the blade at its highest point, each turbine is around 147m tall
Each turbine is taller than the London Eye and has a swept area of 11,300m2 – equivalent to one and a half times the size of Wembley Stadium’s football pitch.
The wind farm generates enough power for around 500,000 homes whilst displacing some 925,000 tonnes of CO2 a year.
177 monopiles were installed – one for each of the 175 wind turbines and two more for the offshore substations.
Each monopole is up to 68m tall and up to 650 tonnes in weight.
Each turbine (the bit above the transition piece) weighs around 480 tonnes.
London Array has 187 array cables (connecting the turbines to each other and to the offshore substations. These are up to 3,200m in length and each metre of cable weighs 50
It was formally opened by David Cameron in July 2014
could fit 7,245 Wembley football pitches inside the wind farm’s boundaries.
London Array was the first Offshore windfarm in the world to achieve an annual output of more than 2TWh in a single year.
The turbines start generating electricity when wind speeds reach 3 metres per second (m/s) or around 7mph. They achieve full power from 13m/s (around 29mph).
London Array has set a new record for the amount of clean electricity produced by an offshore wind farm in a single calendar month.December 2015 saw its 175 turbines generate 369,000 MWh of electricity –the previous best of 317,000 MWh set last November.
