Wind energy

Wind energy production constitutes over 2.5% of total worldwide electricity usage and is growing rapidly at more than 25% per annum. A key advantage of wind power is that it is a renewable source of power with close to zero emissions and limited impact on the environment.

Neuadd-goch Bank wind farm environmental impact assessment

We acted as lead consultant in the preparation of an environmental impact assessment for the proposed Neuadd-goch Bank wind farm, based on a 12-turbine layout, to be located north of Newtown in mid Wales. Key aspects considered included visual impacts, noise and local ecology. Transport issues also needed to be addressed, as the local authority was concerned about the cumulative impact of the various wind farms in Powys.

Mynydd Portref wind farm environmental impact assessment

On a site adjacent to the existing Taff Ely wind farm in south Wales, a new 11-turbine complex at Mynydd Portref was developed for Tegni Cymry Cyf, though it has now changed ownership. Ramboll's specialists undertook an environmental impact assessment for the project, covering such areas as nature conservation, cultural heritage, archaeology, landscape, noise, electromagnetic effects, and various other impacts.
