Rhyl Flats Offshore Wind Farm
Rhyl Flats was constructed throughout 2008 and 2009 and generated its first green energy on 15 July, 2009. It became fully operational in December 2009.
The wind farm is located on the eastern end of the Constable Bank between Abergele and Rhos-on-Sea, approximately 5 miles (8 kilometres) off the coast of North Wales. It comprises 25 wind turbines and has a maximum installed capacity of 90MW. Rhyl Flats Offshore Wind Farm will provide enough clean, green electricity to satisfy the needs of approximately 61,000 homes every year.
Rhyl Flats now sits off the North Wales coast alongside North Hoyle, the UK’s first large scale offshore wind farm and Gwynt y Môr which will be fully operational in 2015.
