After almost 20 years of successful operation, Harlock Hill Wind Farm had reached the end of its life. Its owner, the Barrow-in-Furness based Baywind Energy Co-operative, partnered with Infinergy to repower the site and harness its plentiful wind resource for the next 20-25 years. A naming competition for the upgraded wind farm was held during the public consultation process, which resulted in Furness Wind Farm, after the local area.
In short, the old 5 wind turbines at Harlock Hill have been upgraded to 5 modern machines with a higher installed generating capacity and power output. The new project sees the installed capacity more than quadrupled, from a total installed capacity of 2.5MW to 11.5MW. It is expected that the annual power output will increase six-fold. Two of the turbines are owned by Baywind in their newly set up community energy society High Winds. The other three are owned by Infinergy and are known as Mean Moor after their location west of the Harlock Hill Reservoir. Construction works are now finished and the wind farm is fully operational.
