Vattenfall looks to boost UK position with $695m investment

Vattenfall is to build two new wind power plants in Wales and Scotland as it seeks to boost its presence in what it sees as a promising market.

The Swedish energy company will invest around $695m in developing the 76 turbine, 228 MW wind farm at Pen y Cymoedd in South Wales and the 18-turbine, 36.9 MW Clashindarroch wind farm in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
According to the New Statesman, Peter Smink, director of business division sustainable energy projects at Vattenfall, said that currently, the UK is an attractive market for the firm to invest in onshore wind power because the government has backed its development as a crucial part of its growth agenda.
