London Array windfarm operator, based at Ramsgate, will feature in a BBC documentary tonight (August 8).

The series Inside the Factory is to tell the story of the red double-decker bus and everything that enables it to carry millions of passengers a day – which includes renewable energy provided by organisations such as London Array.

As part of the documentary, presenter Cherry Healey takes a boat trip to the offshore wind farm to learn how the turbines transform wind into electricity that can power more than half a million homes, and any number of other things, such as electric cars and buses.

Bob Smith, General Manager at London Array, said: “By demonstrating the part a wind farm can play in powering an electric bus, this documentary should help people to understand how renewable energy – which can be a distant idea when it relates to something 20km offshore – fits into everyday life.

“It was a pleasure for us to meet the Inside the Factory team and we hope people enjoy watching the documentary as much as we enjoyed helping to make it.”

Inside the Factory: Buses will be broadcast on BBC2 at 9pm tonight.

It will also be available to watch on iPlayer: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m001b0qc
