Project summary

The Brotherton wind farm consists of two wind turbines which have been built with support from Thrive's mezzanine loan into the project and following a relationship and approach established at the Gevens wind farm, the mezzanine was provided in the construction and early operational stage.

The project was constructed and began exporting renewable electricity to the grid in May 2017.  The turbines have a capacity of 4.6MW and are forecast to produce the equivalent demand of over 3,000 UK homes.
