RWE zbuduje gigantyczną farmę wiatrową na morzu
Port of Mostyn confirmed for Gwynt y Môr turbine installation
German utility RWE has confirmed Port of Mostyn in North Wales will be the base for the turbine installation programme for its 576MW Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm in Liverpool Bay, UK.
All 160 Siemens turbines will be installed from the port on the Flintshire coast, where RWE is constructing an operations and maintenance base for its operating wind farms in Liverpool Bay – North Hoyle and Rhyl Flats – as well as Gwynt y Môr once completed.
“Siemens Energy will supply and install 160 of their 3.6MW turbines, with components beginning to arrive at the Port of Mostyn in early 2013 and stored in lay-down areas ready for installation,” says RWE npower renewables’ Gwynt y Môr project director, Toby Edmonds.
RWE says that at least 100 new, long-term skilled engineering jobs will be available at the port. Work to create the new facilities could see more than 120 additional personnel onsite during the construction phase, it adds.
The £50m lease and investment in Port of Mostyn is the biggest Gwynt y Môr contract awarded to a company in Wales.
RWE says development company Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm has invested more than £80m in Wales and more than £200m across the UK so far.
