Hartlepool highest wind turbines plan approved  

Credit:  BBC News | 25 February 2015 | www.bbc.co.uk ~~

Plans for three wind turbines which would be the tallest in England and Wales have been approved in Hartlepool.

Permission was sought for three single turbines at Graythorp Industrial Estate, Brenda Road West Industrial Estate and Tofts Road West.

Originally meant be 200m (655ft) high, they have been reduced to 175m (574ft) following concerns over toppling distance to the nearby railway line.

The scheme was approved by Hartlepool Borough Council’s planning committee.

Being developed by renewable energy company Seneca Global Energy Ltd, building of the turbines is expected to take up to nine months to complete.

By comparison, turbines at Northumberland wind farms such as Lynemouth and Middlemoor are about 120-125m (about 400ft) high.
