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.
We recently wrote to you regarding the Pen y Cymoedd Festival Opening Celebration due to take place on 30th September. We have made the decision to postpone the event until next year due to ongoing construction works onsite. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you onsite next year and will confirm the date as soon as we can.
Don’t forget that there are many walking and mountain bike trails onsite for you to enjoy over the Summer period should you wish to experience the wind farm at your own accord. The area has changed significantly over the last three years due to the new infrastructure so please download this Site Map to take with you. If you would like a paper copy please email us with your address and we will post one out to you.
