Over the last two weeks 40 local residents have joined us for a site visit. Associate Project Manager, Dan Wills and Senior Project Manager, Stephen Holdroyd, our resident tour guides, have answered some interesting questions about various aspects of the project. The questions have ranged from the development, construction and future operational phase of the project, including how the wind farm was designed, the dimensions of the foundations and how many homes the wind farm will power once operational. There was great interest from our visitors to return in 2016 to see the turbines being installed and we look forward to welcoming them back.

Round two of construction from the air

Caption: Steel reinforcement weighing up to 84 tonnes is fixed in place. In total, the 76 turbines require more than 6,000 tonnes of reinforcement.

Last year we published our first aerial footage of the construction works at Pen y Cymoedd. We have now been onsite for close to 18 months and the progress made can be seen in our latest aerial footage. Don’t forget that we are running site visits over the summer for local people to see the construction works with their own eyes. Get in touch if you are interested in joining us.
