Wind farm scuppers plans for island airport

The London Array could be the world’s largest wind power generator producing 1GW of energy – enough to power nearly a million homes.

The first phase of the development is due to be operational by 2012, providing a capacity of 630MW which amongst other things will be used to provide power for the Olympics.
