London Array – Ramsgate, Kent
Central Photography has photographed a wide variety of energy projects in the UK, from wind turbines, wind farms, oil refineries, nuclear power stations to the London Array. Our involvement with the operational facility built at Ramsgate was in producing a set of completion photographs for our client.
The London Array project is a 1GW offshore wind farm between the Kent and Essex coast. The London Array is the world’s first industrial-sized offshore wind farm. When construction is completed it will be capable of generating up to 1,000 megawatts (MW) of power – on a level with many conventional power stations and will be built in two phases. When fully operational, London Array will make a substantial contribution to the UK Government’s target of providing 15.4% of all electricity supply from renewable sources by 2015.
This Operations and Maintenance building at Ramsgate was designed by BBLB architects and built by Mansell Construction, to provide an operational facility for the London Array Offshore Wind Farm.
