Whittlesey Wind Farm

In 2007 we worked with Fenland District Council and gained planning consent for a single wind turbine to be located at our headquarters site in Whittlesey. The turbine was built with our Partners Cornwall Light & Power and became operational in August 2008.

The turbine is a Vesta's V90 with an output capacity of 1.8MW - almost providing enough electricity to run up to 1,500 homes. The turbine now forms part of a larger Wind Farm with McCains, next door to us erecting 3 Vesta's V90 machines in the same year for their own power requirements.
