Gamesa repowers Ovenden Moor
Replacement units will double capacity of UK wind farm to 18MW
Gamesa is to supply nine G80 2MW wind turbines to repower the Ovenden Moor wind farm close to the town of Halifax in the UK.
The 9MW project, developed by a joint venture between utility Eon and renewable generator Energy Power Resources has been in operation since 1993.
The new units will produce twice as much power – 18MW – using less than half as many turbines.
The facility currently consists of 23 turbines.
