Britain's Npower Renewables has become the latest company to apply for consents to build a large project under the UK's second round of offshore development. Its proposed 750 MW Gwynt y Môr wind farm envisages 150 and 250 turbines sited some 13-15 kilometres off the coast of north Wales. According to Npower, the wind farm has the potential to supply 2% of UK households. The company has applied to the Department of Trade and Industry and the National Assembly for Wales for permits to build the turbines together with up to four offshore substations, up to five wind measurement masts and an onshore substation. If consent is granted, Npower expects to build the project between 2008 and 2011
