These stations will be among the most technically advanced in the UK, as they will measure wind speed, wind direction in the area, temperature and air pressure. The East Anglia Offshore Wind project has the potential to deliver 7200MW of installed capacity, which is capable of generating enough clean green energy to power 5 million homes.
