Wind Farm Construction Complete

21 Sep 08 The final wind turbine has been constructed at the site of the South East's largest wind farm on the border with Kent and Sussex.

The final wind turbine has been constructed at the site of the South East's largest wind farm on the border with Kent and Sussex.

The last blade was lifted into place at the £50m Npower Renewables wind farm at Walland Marsh on Saturday.

Twenty-six turbines - each more than 370ft (115m) tall - have been put up over the past three months.

Tests will begin in three weeks' time and it is hoped the farm will start generating electricity in December.

Since June, the propeller blades have been transported by road from Chatham Dockyard to the marsh.

In total, 78 abnormally long loads were escorted by Kent Police.

The wind turbines will generate enough electricity to power 32,000 homes.
