Offshore wind farm

Gwynt y Môr

Gwynt y Môr is a 576 megawatt offshore wind farm located in the Irish Sea off the coast of North Wales, 13 kilometres at the nearest point to shore, 16 kilometres from Llandudno, and 18 kilometres from the Wirral. Commissioned in June 2015, it comprises 160 wind turbines of 150 metres (490 ft) tip height.

The wind farm produces enough clean energy a year to power 467,000 households, equivalent to cutting 1.7 million tonnes of CO2 emissions a year.

Community fund

The associated Gwynt y Môr community fund is an exciting opportunity to make a long term impact on the sustainable development of North Wales.

Over the lifetime of the project (which we expect to be up to 25 year), it will invest over £19 million into projects across North Wales.
