The wind subsidiary of American gas giant Enron Corp has formed a joint venture with Clwyd based Renewable Development Company (RDC) to take forward a 58.5 MW wind farm in mid Wales. The venture applied to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in July for consent to build RDC's NFFO contracted project at Cefn Croes in Ceredigion. Applications for generating projects of over 50 MW are lodged directly with the DTI, bypassing the local planning process, though RDC has initiated a consultation process with the community. If permission is granted, the wind farm will comprise Enron Wind's 1.5 MW wind turbines -- a development of the turbine sold by Enron Wind's German subsidiary, Tacke. Enron Wind has one operational UK wind farm at Owenreagh in Northern Ireland consisting of its own Zond turbines.
