London Array helps launch Kent Coast celebrations
Kent’s Coastal Week was launched in style in Ramsgate (Sunday October 28) with a wide range of activities celebrating the continuing importance of the Royal Harbour to the town.
London Array, a sponsor of the Coastal Week celebrations organised by Kent County Council, treated numerous visitors to a chance to board the Marianarray, one of the wind farm’s state-of-the-art Crew Transfer Vessels, which was moored by the CustomHouse.
Meanwhile, the London Array team’s display recalled the history of the harbour and challenged would-be marine engineers of all ages to tackle the challenges of boat design, maximising wind power and floating marbles.
Joanne Haddon, of London Array, said: “It was a really good start to Kent’s Coastal Week with lots of different fun events held at the harbour and in the town to mark the occasion. There was a great deal of interest in the development of the wind farm.
â€œThis is the second year we have sponsored Kentâ€™s Coastal Week and we are delighted to support this celebration of the history of the countyâ€™s coast and its communities.
â€œIt is also a particular pleasure to be able to demonstrate how the Kent coast continues to be a valuable resource making a tremendous contribution to the economy through production of renewable energy and the sustainability of our communities and our environment.â€
