Rhyd-y-Groes Wind Farm repower to go ahead

Rhyd-y-Groes Wind Farm owned by TPG Wind Ltd, a joint venture between E.ON and Eurus Energy, received planning consent last week from Anglesey County Council to be repowered.

Built off the north-west tip of Anglesey, the current 24 turbine site has been generating power for 24 years making it Wales’ oldest wind farm.  Wind power technology has come a long way since the site was built in 1992 and plans to replace the current 24 turbines with 11 new turbines were submitted to Anglesey Council in April 2015. Once constructed, the proposed 9.9MW repowered site will be able to produce more power than the currently installed 24 turbines.

Paul Hunt, Senior Project Manager at E.ON, said: “We’re pleased to have received consent from Anglesey County Council to repower Rhyd-y-Groes with modern turbine technology. We will now work with Eurus Energy to develop our plans which will enable the site to generate more energy with fewer turbines. “

Timescales to repower the wind farm are yet to be finalised and the current turbines will continue to operate while on-site studies take place.
