A specially-designed lorry delivers one of 39 blades that were safely transported to RES’ Wryde Croft Wind Farm.

The 40m long blade was carried from the docks at Immingham to the wind farm site just east of Thorney.

RES is now beginning erection of the 13 turbines and is on schedule for the wind farm to be completed by the end of this year. Once the wind farm is fully operational, it will generate enough green electricity each year to meet the average needs of around 15,000 UK homes.

Wryde Croft Wind Farm will also provide a community benefits package of £130,000 per year (indexed linked), which amounts to at least £3.25 million during the project’s lifetime.
