The world’s largest offshore wind farm seen from Space

The world’s largest offshore wind farm, off the UK’s Kent coast in the North Sea, is seen in this Envisat radar image, acquired on 14 September 2010. The Thanet Offshore Wind Farm opened on 23 September 2010, boosting UK wind energy capacity by 30%. The Gunfleet Sands Offshore Wind Farm is visible off the Essex coast (centre top), and the port town of Dover is seen in the bottom as a white circular feature on the coastline.
