The 15MW, six-turbine Jack’s Lane Wind Farm is located in North West Norfolk. When complete, the project is expected to generate sufficient renewable electricity to meet the average needs of more than 10,600 homes each year. Alternatively, the four-turbine, 10MW Woolley Hill Wind Warm in Huntingdonshire will be capable of powering more than 8,000 homes when finished.
RES and Nordex previously worked together on several projects in Northern Ireland, with a total installed capacity of 90MW. The current partnership builds on this previous relationship, with the Nordex N90 turbines used at Jack’s Lane Wind Farm, and N100 model at Woolley Hill Wind Farm proving to be the most cost-effective option for delivering full optimised energy yields for the respective projects.
“We look forward to working with Nordex again," said Ted Picken, construction director for RES UK & Ireland, citing Nordex as a company with a track-record for delivering full optimisation of energy yield at sites throughout the UK. "Running the Woolley Hill and Jack’s Lane turbine contracts in parallel provides us with an overall cost reduction in the project management, technical engineering and contract administration that, in turn, encourages close cooperation between the expertise in each organisation.”
Following the construction of the wind farm infrastructure over the next six months, turbines are programmed to be installed and operational by the end of the year.
