The final delivery on route to the controversial Tirgwynt Wind Farm between Cefn Coch and Carno passed through Welshpool yesterday (Saturday).

Powys County Council granted planning consent for the 12 turbine Tirgwynt wind farm to Wind Prospect in October 2013 and large vehicles have been travelling through Welshpool Town centre since late July carrying turbine parts.

In a statement on the Tirgwynt web site a Wind Prospect spokesman said: “We have now completed the turbine delivery programme to Tirgwynt. Thank you for your patience and support.”

The neighbouring wind farm at Carno will be offline until September 25 while the electrical connection works are being carried out at Tirgwynt, and again from October 10-11.

On Monday, RES will begin deliveries to Garreg Lwyd Hill wind farm which will follow the same route from Chester as far as Welshpool, following the town’s by-pass on the way to Newtown.
