Onshore wind farm

Tween Bridge

Facts and figures

Wind farm location Tween Bridge Moor, Thorne, Doncaster
Commissioned in 2012
Electrical output (gross) 44 MW
Number of unites 22 turbines
Turbine height up to 80 metres to hub, 125 metres to blade tip

Tween Bridge wind farm, also known as Tween Bridge Moor, was commissioned in 2012 and is located some 17 kilometres north-east of central Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England. It consists of 22 Vestas V90/2000 wind turbines with a combined rated output of 44 MW. The wind farm, which was launched as a rather small project, was built after a joint public survey on the Keadby wind farm was positive in 2008.

The wind farm was expected to make a significant contribution to achieving the UK government's renewable energy targets. Tween Bridge has many advantages as a wind farm location, for example a significant wind resource and proximity to a suitable grid connection. In 2015, the wind farm supplied around 30,000 households annually with electricity.

The Tween Bridge wind farm provides a community fund for valuable local projects and initiatives. This fund provides around £1.25 million for the local population. To find out more about the community fund, please contact  South Yorkshire's Community Foundation.

 

*Based on an average annual household consumption of 4,115 kWh (source: Renewable UK) for 2015.
