Construction of Galloper Offshore Wind Farm, the £1.5 billion development 30 kilometres off the Suffolk coast, has been completed in record time. All 56 turbines are now generating renewable energy for the UK. The turbines, which are located 27 miles off the coast between Aldeburgh in Suffolk and Clacton-on-Sea in Essex, are expected to generate enough green power to meet the annual electricity needs of more than 380,000 UK households. The German company Innogy SE led the development and construction of the wind farm, and will operate it on behalf of the project partners Siemens Financial Services, Sumitomo Corporation and ESB and a consortium managed by Green Investment Group and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets.
