Eye Turbines on the move
The newly-constructed wind turbines on Eye Airfield are now on the move.
The two 130-metre high wind turbines, designed by Wind Direct for the Roy Humphrey Group, were turning in the high winds experienced during cold weather this week.
Construction of the turbines was completed at the end of January/beginning of February and they have divided opinion being clearly visible on the flat East Anglian landscape from several miles away.
Taller than St Paul’s Cathedral and twice as high as Suffolk’s tallest building, The Mill in Ipswich, they were recommended for refusal by Eye Town Council last year but given the go-ahead by Mid Suffolk District Council.
It is claimed they will generate enough electricity to power about 3,000 homes.
A bid by another firm, Wind Power Renewables, to build two more 130-metre wind turbines is also in the pipeline.
