Greater Gabbard offshore wind turbine foundations installed

Installation of the 140 offshore wind turbine foundations at the UK Greater Gabbard offshore wind farm have now been installed, and 30 offshore wind turbines are in place.

Scottish and Southern Energy Plc (SSE) and RWE npower renewables say the first offshore wind turbines are expected to start producing renewable energy later this year.

Colin Hood, SSE's Chief Operating Officer, says: "This is a substantial milestone in the development of the Greater Gabbard wind farm, and demonstrates how well the project is progressing overall. When the wind farm becomes fully operational in 2012, it will help the UK meet tough targets for renewable electricity generation."
