Fullabrook shut down for ‘essential’ work

Wind farm turbines off line due to electrical maintenance.

THE Fullabrook wind farm has been shut down for ‘essential’ electrical work, according to its owners.

A number of readers have contacted the Gazette to ask why the blades were not turning despite blustery conditions.

Devon Wind Power Ltd said they did not know how long maintenance of the turbines would take.

A spokesperson for holding company said: “Devon Wind Power Ltd, the owner and operator of Fullabrook Windfarm, has taken advantage of the recent calm weather conditions to carry out some essential electrical works.

“These works require the Windfarm to be offline. At present the timeframe for completion of this activity is not confirmed.”
