Shell: London Array welcomes latest government permissions

The consortium¹ developing London Array, one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms in the Thames estuary, has welcomed today’s announcement from the UK Government that electricity transmission works associated with the project can go ahead².

The 1,000MW London Array would consist of up to 341 wind turbines and be able to generate enough electricity to cater for the power needs of a quarter of London homes or every home in Kent and East Sussex. It would also avoid the emission of millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide over its life.
