Are wind turbines used in offshore wind farms larger than ones used on land?

    While the size of onshore and offshore wind turbines vary based on the energy production potential of a given area, generally offshore wind turbines are larger than onshore ones.  This is usually due to the higher potential (better wind conditions) of offshore turbines.  Also, there is usually less complaint about the aesthetic appeal of offshore turbines as is so often the cause for objection to onshore turbines.  As far as numbers go, the average onshore wind turbine is about 50-90 meters high as well as in diameter, while offshore turbines in production now are increased in size to about 110 meters in diameter.
