United Kingdom is committed to offshore wind
To Enerzine [Fr] the world largest offshore wind farm has gone online in the Irish sea. Walney 2 has a capacity of 367,2 MW, enough to power 320,000 British households. It was also the fastest ever installation.
The farm will however quickly lose its title to other projects set to come online in the United Kingdom as well. Indeed, both the Greater Gabbard (500MW) and the London Array (630MW) fams will come online in 2012.
