Eton Manor Windmill

THE 2012 Olympics will be powered by a giant wind turbine which will tower over the game park in East London. The 120-metre high turbine will stay on the site after the Games to power local amenities and housing over its 20-year lifespan.

Located at Eton Manor in the north of the Olympic Park, it will provide enough energy to supply 1,200 homes a year. Construction is set to begin in Spring 2008, subject to planning permission, and the Olympic Delivery Authority hopes it will be fully operational by 2010.
