(Reuters) - The government has approved RWE Innogy's 1,200 megawatt Triton Knoll offshore wind farm, a project with capacity comparable to that of a large nuclear power plant.

The 3.6 billion pound project will house 288 wind turbines 20 kilometres off the coast of Lincolnshire in the east of England.

When it opens towards the end of the decade the offshore wind farm will be the world's biggest, surpassing the London Array project officially opened by Prime Minister David Cameron last week.

The Triton Knoll project will create about 1,130 jobs in Britain and produce enough power for 820,000 homes.
