MANWEB SCALES BACK POWYS PLANS

Plans for a large north Wales wind farm have been scaled bacl after local consultations. Manweb Generation Holdings -- development arm of the local electricity utility -- has amended its planning application for a wind farm at Mynydd-yr-Hendre near Newtown, Powys. Instead of its original proposal for 83 turbines, the company is now applying to build 57 machines. It is also changing the size and location of the machines to reduce the site's visual impact. A mix of 32 Kenetech KVS-45 turbines and 25 of the smaller KVS-33 will now be deployed if the project gets the go-ahead. Manweb says it made the changes in response to consultations and discussions with the planning authority and local community. Mynydd-yr-Hendre is one of three north Wales sites being developed by Manweb and its partner, Kenetech of the US.
