Iggesund plans four turbines

Workington paper mill Iggesund Paperboard wants to erect up to four wind turbines near its Siddick factory.

The firm has submitted a scoping opinion request to Allerdale council to gauge reaction, before it lodges a full planning application.

Erected around 0.2 miles west of Seaton, the proposed turbines would be 360ft with a rotor diameter of 295ft.

The wind farm would include access roads and a control building and it is estimated that most of the construction work would take six to eight months.

Electricity generated from the turbines would contribute to the National Grid.

A spokesman from Iggesund said regular updates on the project would be provided at community liaison group meetings every three months.
