The map below shows the live positions of ships working on the London Array offshore wind farm, Phase 1, off the coasts of Kent and Essex. It’s almost like sitting on the dock of the bay, watching the ships roll in and roll out again.
When the London Array is finished (expected December 2012), it will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world, at 630MW capacity.
This live map uses part of the register of offshore windfarm ships from 4cOffshore, and the live AIS boat-tracking from MarineTraffic.
Just click on the ship’s symbol for more information on it.
