Keadby 68 MW Onshore Wind Farm
Keadby - Sustainability Impact Report
To supply 666,667 people would require almost 23 Keadby-sized wind farms - a total of 777 x 2 MW wind turbines at a cost of £2,258 million.
The site size for 777 x 2 MW wind turbines would need to be 205 sq km.
To provide electricity for the 60 year design life of the SMR, after 25 years a 2nd batch of 777 x 2 MW wind turbines would have to be built and then a 3rd batch would have to deliver for 15 years [40% of its lifespan] before intermittent wind power matched the 24/7 nuclear power from an SMR. That's the intermittent output from
1,865 x 2 MW wind turbines.
So that's 2.4 x £2,258 million:
