Peppers Secures Cable Gland Contract for Worlds Largest Offshore Wind Farm Project

Greater Gabbard will consist of 140 wind turbines each with a capacity of 3.6MW which will give the entire project a maximum capacity of 504MW. The project is going to be located approximately 23 km off shore next to two sand banks known as Inner Gabbard and The Galloper in the North Sea off the Suffolk coast.

The project is expected to be in commercial production in 2011. It will have the capacity to produce enough electricity to power 415,000 homes every year. The company also estimates that the power generated from renewable energy sources will avoid up to 1,000,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year.
