SSE to begin work on Keadby Wind Farm this year

Scottish and Southern Energy intends to begin work this year on a North Lincolnshire wind farm it has acquired from Renewable Energy Systems Group.

The Keadby Wind Farm, which is situated near SSE’s Keadby power station, already has planning approval for the construction of 34 turbines.

Following final investment decisions, work on the wind farm will begin towards the end of 2011 and will be due to finish by early 2014.

Once completed, a capacity of between 68MW and 85MW will have been installed, creating enough energy to power the equivalent of between 38,000 and 47,000 UK homes.

SSE finance director Gregor Alexander said: “We have said that we will pursue both acquisitions and disposals in order to optimise our wind farm portfolio in the UK, and this acquisition of Keadby wind farm, which is SSE’s first consented wind farm in England, is completely in line with that objective.”
