Yelvertoft Wind Farm update

January 29, 2013

MM92_2Turbine deliveries starting this week

Over the past few weeks the final preparations have been made at the Yelvertoft Wind Farm site in advance of the large turbine components being delivered. The tracks are complete, cabling has been laid and all the foundations are now ready for the installation of the turbines.

Deliveries of the blades, tower sections, hubs and nacelles will be starting this week. The large loads will come to site from the M1 motorway, exiting at Junction 18 near Crick and passing through the Eldon Way Industrial Estate. You can find a map of the delivery route in our newsletter, available on our website.

We expect there will be deliveries of components almost every week day through February, with some on Saturday mornings. The final deliveries are expected during the first week of March.

To allow the large loads to pass through the industrial estate, a temporary parking restriction has been put in place on Eldon Way which will remain throughout the period of the deliveries. The large loads will be escorted by the police and will avoid peak traffic times.

If you have any questions about the deliveries please call us on freephone 0800 077 8951. You can also keep up to date with news from the site on Twitter, search for @Turbine_5 to follow our tweets.
