The company has reduced the project area by one-fourth and reduced the number of turbines by 20. The new models proposed will feature turbines between 100 and 175.

E.ON expects the final decision to be made in summer 2014, and on the back of that has provisionally scheduled the commissioning in the year 2017.

The energy produced from the project can meet the power needs of 450,000 homes in the region.
