Wind turbines suitable for Fens site

Wind turbines suitable for Fens site
A renewable energy developer seeking permission for a wind farm claims turbines are the most advanced of the clean technologies.

Notus Energy, which has submitted plans for a 19-turbine project, also claims that turbines provide a good return in terms of energy and benefits for the money required to set them up.

The Marshland Wind Farm proposals feature Enercon E-82 turbines rated at three megawatts (MW) each.

In total the wind farm would have a capacity for 57MW and would generate enough electricity to meet the equivalent of the needs of 28,000 homes.

The developer's website lists various reasons for setting up wind turbines on the site in the Norfolk Fens.

It cites the national windspeed database, on site wind measurements and a report by Arup and Partners, which supports the assertion that there is viable wind speed at the location.

Although the developer claims that no insurmountable issues were raised by 50 organisations consulted for the scoping report, the project has been controversial.

Early plans for the project included 26 turbines but this number was scaled back to the current proposal for 19 as the project developed.

There actually never was a proposal for 26 turbines.  The only published proposal is the one for 19 turbines that has just been submitted for approval.  (Mike Holland on behalf of Marshaland Windfarm Ltd)

Hi Mike, thanks for that correction, we've now amended the story accordingly.

The Enercon E-82 turbinbes are rated at 2MW not 3MW, therefore the application is for 38MW not 57MW.
