Construction begins on Maerdy wind farm in south Wales

Velocita Energy Developments has begun construction of the Maerdy wind farm in south Wales after Scottish renewable energy consultancy SgurrEnergy supported the project to financial close.

SgurrEnergy was selected by Velocita to provide project management and technical advisory services to the owner of the project.

The 24MW wind farm will be made up of eight Siemens 3.0-101 direct-drive wind turbines, each producing 3MW.

The total energy output of the construction will be enough to power more than 13,400 homes.
