Works consisting from feasibility through to installation for a single GEV MP R 275kW Vergnet wind turbine at award winning Lincolnshire Poacher Cheese.
|Wind Turbine||Vergnet GEV MP R Medium Wind|
|Scope of works:||Feasibility,Planning, Electric and Civil Design, Installation, Operations and Maintenance|
Provide a renewable energy solution to offset the farms and business electricity demand, integrate the proposed medium wind turbine into the exising power distribution network and install the generator.
A comprehensive study was undertaken which determined the Vergent 275kW GEV MP R wind turbine would be most suitable for the farms usage. Planning permission was first applied for in March 2010, a second permission was submitted and approved in May 2011 in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. ICE Renewables supported the farm as consultants throughout the planning process providing technical details and support documents.
Alongside this ICE Renewables provided a comprehensive electrical and civil design package and upon the completion of these works the project immediately progressed into the installation and now operations and maintenance phase.
The wind turbine is complete and is the first Vergnet GEV MP R turbine to be installed in the world.
“It is amazing to be milking cows and making cheese using the power of the wind. With the help of ICE Renewables and Vergnet we are able to use an abundant natural resource to generate our own electricity on the farm and that is hugely exciting.” Says Tim Jones, Director of F.W. Read and Sons
