RPS Group Plc has co-ordinated and prepared the Environmental Statement (ES) on behalf of London Array Limited in support of applications for an offshore wind farm in the Outer Thames Estuary and associated onshore works at Cleve Hill, near Faversham, Kent. London Array is the first of the Round 2 UK offshore wind farm projects to apply for consents and when complete will be the largest wind farm in the world. The applications come after an extensive consultation process as well as comprehensive technical and environmental studies. The wind farm, if built, could generate up to 1000 MW of renewable energy electricity. The full development, costing up to £1.5bn, will require up to 270 turbines and would connect into the National Grid transmission system in Kent.
