The Celtic Sea Opportunity

The Celtic Sea lies between Wales and the South West Coast of England. Technology innovation means that wind farms can be located far offshore in much deeper waters to harness the power of higher and more consistent wind speeds to create green energy to help meet, both Wales and UK Government's, net-zero targets.

Gwynt Glas Project Overview

investmentGenerating prosperity
Our aim is to develop a floating offshore wind farm in the Celtic Sea to generate clean energy and boost regional economic prosperity, while minimising disruption to the natural environment, local communities and sea users.

Gwynt Glas is conducting initial development activities with the intention of obtaining an Agreement for Lease from The Crown Estate for a floating offshore wind farm of up to 1GW.

Power to homes
The proposed project is likely to span English and Welsh waters and could provide power for approximately *920,000 homes.

* Load factors based on the five year rolling averages on unchanged configuration basis using Table 6.5 of 'Digest of UK Energy Statistics' - latest figures as per July 2019 release. Based upon the average domestic electricity consumption per home (temperature corrected) per the Energy Consumption in the UK (published July 2019, Table C9 of ECUK: Consumption data tables).  

Gwynt Glas is Welsh for blue wind, in recognition of its Celtic roots.
