The world's largest and most powerful offshore wind turbine will test its wings at an innovative facility in northeast England.

The 12-megawatt Haliade-X, developed by GE Renewable Energy, stands 853 feet tall, or about three times the height of the Flat Iron building in New York City. Its massive rotor diameter of 722 feet is roughly the tower height of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge above water.

By January 2018, all 60 transition pieces had been installed on the Arkona offshore windfarm, with the transformer station due to be delivered this spring.

Construction of the Arkona project in the German sector of the Baltic is progressing at a fast pace. After all of the foundations were installed, attention turned to the transition pieces, all of which are now in place.
