Vattenfall 250MW project in Wales approved

UNITED KINGDOM: A 250MW wind farm in Wales was given the green light by the UK government today.

When built, the Pen y Cymoedd project will be the largest onshore wind farm in England and Wales. The wind farm is being developed by Vattenfall, the parent company of Nuon Renewables, which originally applied for the construction permit.

Vattenfall hopes to start construction next year and generate electricity by 2016.

As part of the development consent, Vattenfall will invest in a £3 million local habitat restoration project and a community fund of up to £55 million over the 25-year life of the project.
