• The first offshore wind turbine was just one mile off the coast. Today projects are being planned 50 miles out
  • Projects are being planned for depths of up to 45m
  • Currently, the largest wind farm is in Thanet with 100 turbines
  • The largest offshore turbines are 150m high, with 62m long blades – almost twice the length of a single Airbus 380 wing
  • A single wind turbine blade can weigh 25 tonnes
  • The loads on a blade during high winds are the equivalent of placing a car at the end of a 3KM beam
