The Port of Heysham Wind Farm is a proposal to install up to 3 turbines on the dock wall in the Port of Heysham. The scheme, with a capacity of up to 9MW, would be designed to have an operational life of at least 25 years and could generate enough electricity to meet the average needs of approximately 4, 600 homes – half of the households in Heysham.
We have undertaken extensive environmental and technical studies and believe the port to be suitable for up to 3 commercial scale wind turbines. The shoreline location provides excellent average wind speeds; the port already has well established industrial operations outside of any statutory environmental designation; and the site allows for sufficient distance between the turbines and residential properties, enabling us to satisfy stringent noise regulations.
Following public consultation, including a visit to an operational wind farm for local residents and public exhibition events, a planning application was submitted to Lancaster City Council in September 2011.
