Co-op’s community wind farm on track


The development of Awel Co-op’s wind farm in Wales is well under way with the energisation of the wind turbines due to take place next month. Final take over by Awel Co-op as the owner and Enercon for the turbine operations and maintenance took place in January 2017. The project comprises two Enercon E-82 E4 wind turbine generators with an installed capacity of 4,7 MW, 59 m hub height, and 82 m rotor diameter. The site is located just north of Pontardawe within Neath Port Talbot County Borough. Mynydd y Gwrhyd wind farm will supply the equivalent electricity needs of about 2500 homes. Awel Co-op is recognised in the industry as a pioneering community windfarm scheme that has promoted local benefits from local resources.
