Photo PlaceTHE world’s fourth-largest wind turbine producer was in Fremantle this week to put pressure on Fremantle Ports to free up land on Rous Head for a wind farm.

Enercon, which has a stake in the Albany wind farm and a turbine on Rotto, has been providing the Fremantle Wind Farm project with advice and told Ports boss Chris Leatt-Hayter in 2010 it believed the project was feasible.

Fremantle Ports has consistently shrugged off similar projects, saying it fears for the safety of workers from ‘wind turbine syndrome’ and needs the land for port-related activities.
