The indicative layout provided was for 127 turbines; however, this layout has now been divided into two stages, the first consisting of 111 turbines, and a possible second stage of 16 turbines.
Construction of the first 111 turbines commenced in June 2010 and was completed in October 2011. The figures contained on this website relate to a project size of 111 wind turbines.
