Pen y Cymoedd Wales Nuon / Natural Power

Client: Natural Power.

Developer: Vattenfall.

The Pen y Cymoedd scheme, currently under construction, will be the largest on-shore wind farm in England and Wales.  The project comprises 76 turbines in Neath Port Talbot and Rhondda Cynon Taf.  The environmental impact assessment involved noise monitoring in 30 locations and various cumulative assessments.  A subsequent report reviewed twelve candidate turbine types for compliance with the project noise limits.
