The world’s largest offshore wind farm will now be powered with the world’s largest wind turbine, The Guardian reported Tuesday . The new turbines, built by GE Renewable Energy , are 220 meters (approximately 722 feet) high, nearly 300 feet taller than the London Eye. They have blades more than 100 meters (approximately 328 feet) long and will have the ability to power 16,000 homes each. The turbines will be installed in the Dogger Bank Wind Farms project, to be built off the UK’s Yorkshire Coast next year by SSE Renewables and Norway’s Equinor . "Dogger Bank will now be home to the largest offshore wind turbines in the world and to this pioneering low carbon technology, which will play a central role in helping the UK become carbon neutral by 2050," director of capital projects at SSE Renewables Paul Cooley told Offshore Wind . The UK became the first G7 country to commit to carbon neutrality by mid-century this June.
