The wind farms

EnBW and bp are proud to be leading the development of the Morgan and Mona wind farms.

At this very early stage, it is too soon to know the size and number of turbines required. We will develop this through the design process, including consideration of:

  • Offshore infrastructure (including number and type of turbines, offshore substation(s) and cables)

  • Cable landfall location

  • Onshore infrastructure (including substation location)

All of the above will be determined taking account of a number of factors and constraints, and in consultation with regulators.

EnBW and bp will also work closely with local councils, local communities and others to inform the project design.

Keep an eye on this website and local press for details of when you can get involved.

If you want to learn more about the consenting process, you can visit the Planning Inspectorate’s website.
