RMJM wins green light for East Coast wind farm substation

  • Comment

RMJM has the green light for the substation to transform and distribute electricity from the London Array, the largest proposed offshore wind farm in Europe

Designed to look like a row of beach huts, the building at Cleve Hill near Graveney will link to the massive London Array, which will sit between the Kent and Essex coasts and is expected to generate enough power for a quarter of all the homes in Greater London.

RMJM’s substation, which will link the 1,000MW farm to the National Grid, features a ‘a series of modular structures, creating a 160m long x 9m high rhythmic line of solids and voids, screening the onshore components of the wind farm’.

Although the project was given the green light in principle in August 2007, the approval was conditional on the submission of further design details and a public consultation.

Work on site is expected to start later this year.
