Stirling-based Natural Power has been appointed to manage a 19-turbine, 50.3MW wind farm in Cheshire- one of the largest onshore turbine parcs in England

Frodsham Wind Farm is owned by Peel Energy and Belltown. Power Natural Power will assume operational and site management responsibility following completion of the construction phase which is due to finish in the last quarter of 2016.

Between now and take-over of the site, Natural Power will be conducting a rigorous handover including familiarisation visits and formal familiarisation training, population of the ControlCentre work control system, and preparation of induction materials, site safety rules and emergency response plans.

Natural Power’s appointed site manager, Mike Hughes, who is local to Frodsham, will be supported by the wider regional and national team to maximise efficiency and reduce downtime.
