Partnerships for Renewables to present six-turbine wind scheme in UK
Oct 7, 2013 - UK firm Partnerships for Renewables said on Friday it would hold public consultations to present a proposal for a six-turbine wind park in eastern England.
The wind power facility is planned to be installed at a site in the village of Saundby, Nottinghamshire. However, its capacity and further details were not provided.
Partnerships for Renewables will set up a community benefit fund for the project, which will bring about GBP 5,000 (USD 8,000/EUR 6,000) per MW of installed capacity each year. Assuming that the scheme is powered by six 2.5-MW turbines, it will contribute GBP 75,000 annually to the fund, or more than GBP 1.8 million during the system’s 25-year lifetime.
The company noted that it had been collaborating with the Environment Agency (EA) to study the feasibility of developing a wind project on land between Saundby and Gainsborough, owned by the EA. It expects to submit a planning application for the project later in 2013, regional manager Jerry Sturman said.
Members of the local community will be able to receive more information about the scheme, including turbine design and layout, on October 9 and 10.
