Frodsham Wind Farm

TurbineConstruction of Frodsham Wind Farm commenced in March 2015 and it became fully operational in February 2017. The 19 turbines are Nordex N90 2.65MW machines, each being 125m in height to the blade tip.

The total installed capacity of the wind farm is more than 50MW, making it one of England’s largest onshore generating stations and the largest in the Cheshire region.

Peel Energy sold its residual interest in Frodsham Wind Farm to the Foresight Group in 2019.
Frodsham Wind Farm Ltd, owned by the Foresight Group is voluntarily committed to providing an annual Community Benefit Fund of up to £120,000 to be used for community projects that benefit the local villages in the Marshes Community Benefit Fund area.

Frodsham Wind Farm is primarily located on land owned and operated by the Manchester Ship Canal Company, a part of the Peel Ports division of The Peel Group.
The wind farm is essentially divided into two ‘clusters’ of turbines, each served by its own sub-station: the western cluster comprises 13 turbines and is located to the immediate north of the village of Helsby; the eastern cluster consists of 6 turbines and is located to the immediate north of the village of Frodsham.
