'World's largest wind turbines to be built off Yorkshire coast'
The largest offshore wind turbines ever built will begin powering millions of British homes using blades more than 100 metres long by the early 2020s.
Each of the new mega-turbines planned for the world’s biggest offshore windfarm at Dogger Bank in the North Sea will reach 220 metres high and generate enough electricity for 16,000 homes.

Plans for offshore windfarms off the Suffolk coast have not been thought through adequately, says Suffolk County Council. Among the issues raised were the visual impact on the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, impact on tourism, the severe effects on the village of Friston, doubts about the planting mitigation, noise and disturbance on communities and road networks.
