Two Northumberland firms have won contracts to help with a windfarm development consisting of four, 126-metre-high turbines.

Construction of Infinis Energy PLC’s multi-million-pound Sisters project started last week on land near to Widdrington.

Beck Groundworks in Amble and KW Purvis Ltd in Alnwick have been appointed to build the site entrance.

The work effectively kick-starts the ground operations, which will include installation of the site compound/access tracks in readiness for the main construction activity later this year.

The scheme is expected to be completed in autumn 2016.
