Site Statistics

Askam

Location Askam in Furness, Cumbria
Project scope 7 turbines
Turbine height 40m to hub
Total power Up to 4.62MW

Construction began in 1998 on Askam Wind Farm, it took eight months to construct and first generated electricity in July 1999.

In 2005 the wind farm generated enough renewable electricity to supply nearly 2,500 homes and avoided the emission of over 4,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

The wind farm is not permanently manned, the turbines are controlled and monitored from Rheidol Power Station.

As is customary with our wind farm projects, the land surrounding the turbines continues to be used for pasture, and a public right of way extends across the site.
