New plans for tall windfarm redevelopment



New plans for tall windfarm redevelopment
A windfarm is set to become the tallest in the UK if a planned redevelopment is given the go-ahead.

ScottishPower Renewables and partner Eurus Energy have submitted a planning application for the redevelopment of the existing farm, which is in north Wales.

Llandinam was originally the largest wind farm in Europe when it was built in 1992 but the redevelopment would see the number of turbines reduced from 103 to 42 and the height increased to 400 feet each, the highest in the UK.

Project director David Walker told EnergyCurrent: "We aim to fully utilise the huge improvements in turbine technology over the last 15 years and realise the full potential of renewable energy from this excellent site – while reducing the number of turbines."

Meanwhile, objectors have voiced concerns about the proposed redevelopment and think the wind farm could have a detrimental visual impact on the landscape, reports the Western Mail.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18590948-ADNFCR
