TWO NEW WIND FARMS

Two new wind farms have begun operation in Britain for New World Power. A project of 11, 500 kW Nordtank turbines was completed in December at Dyffryn Brodyn, Dyfed, and in the same month, ten, 300 kW WindMaster turbines came on stream at Caton Moor in Lancashire. A firm of consultants in the north of England, Borderwind, has a contract to operate the Caton Moor wind farm. Work is now underway to complete New World Power's third wind farm at Four Burrows in Cornwall, to be made up of 15, 300 kW Bonus turbines from Denmark. This was delayed by the local planning authority which refused to agree to a "non-reflective" finish for the blades. The matter was finally resolved when a Department of the Environment inspector passed judgement in New World Power's favour. The company now expects to begin generating at the site in March.
