Curlew Power Limited
Curlew Power acquired a wind farm located in Workington, Cumbria, which has a total installed capacity of 9.6MW. The site comprises 16 operational wind turbines, which will benefit from support under the Renewables Obligation Certificate (ROC) scheme for approximately 4.5 years, with an attractive return expected during this period. We are also exploring opportunities for life-extensions/redevelopment to further enhance value beyond this period.
The wind farm is currently generating enough clean energy to power approximately 5,000 homes annually* and forms part of our wider strategy to support UK businesses making a positive contribution through the benefits of renewable energy generation.
