EDF Energy Renewables is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Barmoor wind farm project from Duke Energy and Statkraft UK Limited. The project site which is located between Ford and Lowick,14km south-west of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, was developed by Force 9 and the sellers.

The six turbine project, which is expected to have a capacity of 12 MW, received planning consent in January 2010 and EDF Energy Renewables will now progress the construction of the site as soon as possible.
