Great Eppleton Wind Farm is a wind farm near Hetton-le-Hole, England. It is owned and operated by E.ON UK. Constructed in 1997, it was notable for originally consisting of twin-bladed turbines, as most wind turbines have three blades. On 29 September 2009 E.ON announced it would replace these with four new REpower MM92 turbines giving a nameplate capacity of 8.2 MW.[1][2][3]
