Cold Northcott Windfarm

Southwest Environmental were commissioned to carry out a Visual Impact Assessment for a Wind turbine adjacent to the Cold Northcott Wind farm a wind farm that has 21 turbines, each around 25 meters high to the hub and a 33 meter blade diameter giving an overall height of approx. 41 meters. In order to create a 3D model it was necessary to reproduce a 3D model of the existing twin blade turbines.
