What is the marine licence for?
Awel y Môr Offshore Wind Farm is a proposed sister project to the operational Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm off the north-east coast of Wales. Awel y Môr will comprise up to 50 Wind Turbine Generators and all associated infrastructure required to transmit the electricity generated to shore.
The Awel y Môr array area lies approximately 10.5km off the north-east coast of Wales. The offshore Export Cable Corridor extends from the south-western to south-eastern boundary of the array area in a south-easterly direction to meet land at Frith Beach between Rhyl and Prestatyn.
Outside of the scope of this marine licence, an onshore Export Cable Corridor extends from the landfall to the onshore substation west of St Asaph's Business Park before connecting to the National Grid substation at Bodelwyddan.
What other consents does the project need?
A Development Consent Order for the Project was granted by the Secretary of State on 20 September 2023. Further information on the Development Consent Order can be found on the Planning Inspectorate’s website.
