Our proposals for Mynydd y Glyn wind farm include:

  • up to seven wind turbines with a blade height of up to 155m;
  • substation and transformer housing;
  • temporary contractor compounds;
  • grid connection;
  • crane pads and cabling;
  • new access and junction off the highway; and
  • improvements to existing access tracks.

It is anticipated that a separate application will be needed from the Local Authority for the temporary removal of highway furniture to allow for the transportation of turbines to site.

The design iteration work has been influenced by an extensive suite of assessment and survey work together with modelling of potential views from local sensitive receptors to minimise potential effects.

The project team is confident the site can accommodate seven wind turbines, generating up to 30MW of electricity, which is equivalent to providing enough power to meet the annual electricity needs of approximately 15,376 homes.

The wind farm has been designed with an operational life of 30 years, exporting renewable energy to the National Grid.

Pennant Walters has an accepted grid offer from Western Power Distribution (WPD) for a 33kV connection at Upper Boat. Whilst the overhead line will be assessed and consented as part of the DNS application, the undergrounded section will form part of a separate application by WPD.
