Wear Point Wind Farm becomes operational
After a phase of finalising grid connection arrangements and turbine commissioning, Wear Point Wind Farm, which is located along the Milford Haven Waterway, has reached the operational stage. All four turbines are in full operation and have an expected lifespan of 25 years.
Leading international infrastructure investor and asset manager John Laing has now acquired wind developer Infinergy’s 20% share in Wear Point Wind Ltd, the company set up to manage the wind farm. This acquisition gives John Laing full ownership of the wind farm.
The wind farm is situated on disused industrial land owned by oil storage facility SemLogistics in Waterston. Apart from sourcing products and services with a total value of £4.5m in the Welsh economy during construction, the wind farm has benefited the local community by upgrading and refurbishing Waterston’s playing field for a value of £20,000. Further to that, an amount of £14,000 has been contributed towards Pembrokeshire County Council’s planned upgrading of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
