95m-high wind farm on Rotherham skyline 'by end of year'

THREE 95-metre high wind turbines are “likely” to be up and running in Harthill by the end of 2010.

Rotherham Borough Council granted permission for developers Cornwall Light and Power to construct the turbines two years ago, despite prolonged protests from residents.

In an application for a wind-monitoring mast on the site, the company said: “The three planned wind turbines at Loscar Farm are due to be installed this year.

“They are likely to be operating before the end of this year, and will have an approximate tip height when vertical of 95 metres.

“This application is for a temporary mast approximately one-sixth of the total height of these turbines.

“We are looking to confirm that the turbines are generating the expected amount of electricity for the wind stream passing over them and also to confirm the CO2 savings made as a result of the operation of the turbines.”

“CLP has endeavoured to sensitively incorporate the design and location of the mast into this open landscape.”
