Gunfleet Sands Offshore Wind Farm
Gunfleet Sands offshore wind farm 172MW wind farm 7 km off the Clacton-on-Sea and Holland Essex coast in the Northern Thames Estuary, commissioned on 15 June 2010. It has 48 Siemens wind turbines of 3.6 MW capacity each. It is sited on the large sand bank, once (and still) a shipping hazard. Due to good tides and the need to avoid Harwich and Felixstowe the PS Waverley passed close to the windfarm.
