Newport sewage plant wind turbine gets green light  

Credit:  South Wales Argus | www.southwalesargus.co.uk 9 July 2012 ~~

A plan to build a new wind turbine at a sewage treatment works in Newport was approved at a council meeting.

Newport council planning committee approved a plan from Welsh Water to build the turbine at the sewage treatment works at West Nash Road, Nash.

The committee hearing heard that abnormal loads for the project will be imported by ship to a jetty near Uskmouth Power Station, and that the turbine would have a similar appearance in size to the two at the Solutia site.

The turbine is expected to supply around half of the power used at the works, will be 130 metres high and is expected to have an operational life of 25 years.
