Work on Phase 1 started in July 2009 when we began building the onshore substation at Cleve Hill in Kent.
Facts and Figures:
* An offshore area of 100km2
* 175 wind turbines
* Two offshore substations
* Nearly 450km of offshore cabling
* One onshore substation
* 630MW of electricity
* Enough power for around 480,000 homes a year – two thirds of the homes in Kent
* CO2 savings of 925,000 tonnes a year
Phase 1 will cost €2.2 billion to build and install, and should be complete in 2012.
