Over the past week we have been watching the construction of a new REPower 3.4MW wind turbine for Hainsworth Energy.

It has been an incredibly impressive event to watch, as after two weeks of preparation the whole system was put together in four days.

The system will be commissioned at the end of September.

Device Statistics

  • Power Output: 3.4MW
  • Energy: Enough to supply over 2000 homes a year
  • Height: 128 meters

Projects such as these help protect the UK from the global energy prices and help combat anthropogenic climate change.

Below we have a range of photos, and more on the Narec Distributed Energy Twitter
