Following extensive public consultation and technical assessment, Wind Prospect submitted a planning application to Boston Borough Council for a wind farm at Bicker Fen in March 2003. The proposal, consisting of thirteen 2 MW turbines with a total generating capacity of 26MW of green power, was given the green light by the Planning Committee in September 2003, with Councillors voting 12-0 in favour of the project.

As well, an on-site investigation to assess the ground conditions has been conducted. Wind Prospect developed turnkey contracts with partners SIIF Energies for the project.

The project was commissioned in 2008.
