Wind in Wales

The UK‘s largest onshore wind power project, the Cefn Croes wind farm in Wales, was officially opened last month.


Located near Devil’s Bridge in Ceredigion, Wales, the Cefn Croes project has a total wind power capacity of 58.5MW, enough to meet the electricity needs of 42,000 Welsh households.


The Cefn Croes project is owned by Falck Renewables, a leading European developer of wind projects and a subsidiary of the Falck Group, based in Milan, Italy.



The new wind farm is operated by Cambrian Wind Energy, a subsidiary of Falck Renewables, and was developed by the Renewable Development Company (RDC). Falck Renewables and RDC are jointly developing more than 500MW of wind energy projects in England, Scotland and Wales.



The new wind farm, which provides 20% of Wales‘ current wind energy, uses 39 GE 1.5MW wind turbines.
