Vestas to Supply 68 MW of New Wind Turbines for Keadby Wind Farm in UK
Wind power giant Vestas has recently been contracted to supply 68 MW of wind turbines, consisting of 34 units of the V90-2.0 MW turbine, for the Keadby Wind Farm project near Scunthorpe in Lincolnshire, UK.
The order was recently placed by Keadby Wind Farm Ltd; which is a company wholly owned by SSE. SSE is one of the top electricity and gas companies that are operating in the UK and Ireland. They are the second-largest power generation business in the UK, having a total capacity of over 11,300 MW.
“Keadby Wind Farm is due to be the largest onshore wind power plant in England. Once constructed, Keadby Wind Farm will have an installed capacity of 68 MW and it will provide clean, green energy and power the equivalent of between 38,000 and 47,000 UK homes.”
The installation of the wind turbines is expected to begin in 2013 during the summer and to be completed by summer 2014.
