Banks Renewables cancels 20-MW wind project in England
Jul 3, 2013 - The renewable energy development arm of Britain's The Banks Group abandoned its plans to build a 20-MW wind park in North West England as it was not technically feasible.
Banks Renewables said Tuesday that after going through the technical requirements for the Stonechest project it concluded that it would not be able to meet them so it will not proceed with the development.
The company unveiled the Stonechest wind scheme back in 2009, planning to install 10 turbines at a commercial forestry site in Cumbria, North West England.
At the beginning of June 2013 the developer scrapped plans for an up-to-20-MW wind farm near Stirling, Scotland due to poor wind speeds.
