Wear Point turbines switched on

First published in Milford Mercury news

FOUR turbines measuring almost 100 metres are now up and running on the Milford Haven waterway.

The turbines at Wear Point, near Waterston, were installed last autumn, but the project ran into ran into significant delays.

Described as 'state-of-the-art', the REpower MM82 machines now in full operation and have an expected lifespan of 25 years.

Leading international investment firm John Laing has now acquired wind developer Infinergy’s 20 per cent share in Wear Point Wind Ltd, the company set up to manage the wind farm, giving it full ownership of the wind farm.

As well as potentially powering 4,500 homes, the wind farm has benefited the local community by the upgrading and refurbishing of Waterston’s playing field for a value of £20,000.

A figure of £14,000 has also been contributed towards Pembrokeshire County Council’s planned upgrading of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
