Following a detailed review, ScottishPower Renewables has decided not to progress any further with Dyfnant Forest Windfarm in north Powys, Wales. The company has been working on proposals for the project since 2008, including a range of detailed technical and environmental studies at the site.
Simon Christian, UK Managing Director, ScottishPower Renewables, said:
“Unfortunately, with anticipated lengthy planning processes and major grid modernisation required, we are not confident the project can be delivered in a timeframe that would make it financially viable for us.
“We are currently seeking to replace our turbines at Llandinam in Mid Wales, and we await a planning decision following a lengthy Public Inquiry. We have decided to focus our onshore wind efforts in Wales on this project.
“We have been an active wind power developer in Wales since 1992, and we hope that our association with renewable energy in the country will continue for many years to come. We would like to thank all of the residents, groups and interested parties who have been involved in the consultations during development of Dyfnant.”
