Over the last few months our turbine components have been unloaded at Swansea Docks before making their way by road to the site. Our colleagues at ABP South Wales – Swansea Docks have very kindly shared these photos with us of the turbine components being unloaded from the vessels and momentarily stored in the large ‘lay-down’ area. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did and more can be seen on our Flickr stream. Photo credit: Mike O’Dwyer.
Construction at Pen y Cymoedd Wind Energy Project commenced in February 2014. Civil works, including the turbine foundations and access tracks are nearing completion meaning that the site is now ready to receive the turbine components.
