September 17 (Renewables Now) - All 27 turbines have been installed at the 96-MW Clocaenog Forest wind farm project in North Wales, Innogy Renewables UK Ltd has announced.
Construction of the wind farm commenced in March 2018 and the first of the Vestas V105 turbines was installed a year later in April. This July, Clocaenog Forest generated first power, while operations are expected to start later this year.
The UK renewables unit of Innogy SE’s (ETR:IGY) hired civil engineering company Jones Bros to build the infrastructure for the new wind farm under a contract worth over GBP 20 million (USD 24.9m/EUR 22.6m). Collett & Sons Ltd was tasked with delivering all the wind turbine components.
Once fully operational, Clocaenog Forest will be able to generate enough power to meet the annual demand of 63,800 average UK households.
