The first turbines at SSE’s Keadby onshore wind farm have been energised and exported electricity to the National Grid for the first time.
The 34-turbine wind farm, situated adjacent to SSE’s Keadby Power Station in north Lincolnshire, is due for completion in summer 2014. Once fully commissioned, the 68MW development will be the largest onshore wind farm in England and will produce enough energy to power the equivalent of over 57,000 homes.
Keadby Wind Farm Project Manager, David Sutton, said: “Once the turbines are installed, they undergo rigorous testing and commissioning before they can be declared operational. This is an exciting point in the construction process and it’s great to see the first turbines generating electricity.”
