Since the first deliveries in January, for the past six months Collett & Sons Ltd has been traveling the 70-mile route from Ellesmere Port to Clocaenog Forest Wind Farm, steadily delivering the turbine components to the North Wales site.
Collett has made the final journey from the port to the development site, delivering the final tower sections to complete the project.
Through the snow of January, the storms of February, and the record-breaking heat of July, Collett methodically delivered each of the 270 components. With a total of 121 abnormal load convoys and 15 self-escorted convoys, Collett covered a staggering 16,929 miles with a total of 12,420 metric tons.
Construction is now underway of the 27 V105 Vestas turbines, which will form Innogy Renewable UK’s North Wales site. Once operational, Clocaenog Forest will have an installed capacity of 96 MW and will generate enough renewable energy for the equivalent domestic needs of up to 63,800 average households per year.
