|Regeneco Ltd commissioned TNEI Services Ltd to provide full planning and environmental consultancy services on the Severn Trent Water wind project. TNEI initially undertook an extensive GIS sieving and feasibility assessment of the STW portfolio. One of the sites identified as potentially being suitable for a wind turbine development was Stoke Bardolph Sewage Treatment Works.
The site is located within the Green Belt and the scheme was a resubmission of a previous planning application for two 132 metres to blade tip turbines which was refused planning permission in April 2012.
The scheme will consist of a single turbine with a maximum height to blade tip of 100 metres, as well as associated infrastructure. The turbine will have a maximum installed capacity of 2.5MW.
