Ambewela Aitken Spence Wind Farm

One of the few wind farms in Sri Lanka, yet situated at the highest above sea level is the Ambewela Aitken Spence Wind Farm which is considered ‘mini’ in size. The Wind Farm is owned and operated by Ace Wind Power a subsidiary of the Aitken Spence.

Any visitor could see the gigantic wind turbines rising up from the greenlands like alien sculptures. As of the year 2012 – it had been active as one of the few operating wind farms in Sri Lanka where it contains 12 wind turbines which adds up 250KW each (totalling upto 3MW) to the National Power Supply.
