Wind farm

Ness Point wind farm

Project location

Ness Point, in Lowestoft is the most easterly point in England and our turbine sits right on the sea wall there, making the most of winds whipping in off the North Sea.

Since we invested in the project the Orbis Energy Centre has been established next door to our site.  The office complex is a flagship focus for the east of England's renewables network and home to a range of established and innovative organisations supporting the sector.

Lowestoft is also established as a hub for servicing the growing number of offshore wind farms in the area.

Project summary

When the 2.75MW turbine was built, it was the largest onshore turbine in the UK which earned it the local nickname "Gulliver".  Today, this scale of turbine has become established as the norm for commercial onshore projects.
