The project was started by myself and others as WEG employees in 1990, but when the development activities were transferred to NWP we carried on the planning application on WEG's behalf. We then fought and won a tough public inquiry in 1993 on the basis of using WEG turbines. However, the site is small at 14 turbines, it has significant planning restrictions and for these and other reasons, earlier this year, WEG opted not to proceed. NWP agreed to purchase the rights to the project and the construction contract for Trysglwyn Windfarm has now been let to Bonus A/S.
The wind industry should be pleased that this excellent demonstration site will at last be developed to further the cause of appropriate sustainable development. I hope you will give the project a better review when it is successfully completed next summer.
