Located in Rose Hill, Manchester, the wind farm currently comprises three plants; the 20.7 MW Phase I, which began operating in 2004, Phase II an 18 MW extension facility commissioned in 2010 and the 24 MW Phase III, which was commissioned in 2016 bringing the wind farm’s total capacity to 62.7 MW.
