Powergen plans to repower St Breock wind farm in Cornwall

Powergen Renewables' plans to repower its St Breock wind farm in Cornwall have been given the thumbs up from North Cornwall District Council, which approved its application to replace the existing 11, 450 kW turbines with eight 1.3 MW machines, almost tripling electricity output from the site. According to the company, the repowering will help the region meet its target, set by the Government Office for the South West, of 11-15% of electricity to be generated from renewable sources by 2010. Powergen Renewables, in its Yorkshire Windpower joint venture with Energy Power Resources Ltd, also plans to repower Ovenden Moor wind farm in West Yorkshire. It hopes to replace the 23, 400 kW machines with 18 larger wind turbines, but the company stresses it could change its proposals after local consultations.
