Go ahead given for wind turbine facility

Posted on by in News

Mabey Bridge has been given the green light by Monmouthshire Council to expand its new facility which will see it become the largest UK manufacturer of wind turbine towers, both for onshore and offshore applications.

The company purchased the site in Chepstow in January for £13M, and it will now invest a further £25M increasing the size of the warehouse to enable the fabrication of wind turbine towers. Once the work is complete Mabey expects to fabricate around 300 towers per annum.

Peter Lloyd, Mabey Bridge Managing Director, said: “Now we have planning approval we are able to start construction on the necessary extension to the existing building that will be required to apply protective coatings to these towers.

“The new facility will be a state-of-the-art factory for tower manufacturing, allowing us to compete with any other tower manufacturers worldwide.”
