Milestone for turbine work

Have your say

construction of a new £21.9m wind farm in South Yorkshire has reached a milestone with work starting on the concrete foundations.

Banks Renewables, part of The Banks Group, began operations on the Penny Hill wind farm site, to the south east of Rotherham and the west of the junction of the M1 and M18, in July.

The company has kept to the schedule of work despite rainy summer weather.

For six-weeks from today, concrete will be delivered and poured into the foundations, with work on each turbine taking a week.
