Wind turbine installed at water treatment works

Utility South West Water has installed a 100kW wind turbine at its Lowermoor (Crowdy) Water Treatment Works, near Camelford, in North Cornwall.

South West Water hopes the turbine will generate around 60% of the site’s annual power needs, with a payback period of four years.

The turbine has a 30m hub height, with a rotor diameter of 21m and a rated capacity of around 100kW. It sits in a base made of 100m³ of concrete.
