    Welsh wind farm acquired by Marubeni

    Marubeni has completed the acquisition of the 25MW Upper Ogmore Wind Farm and energy storage venture in the southern region of Wales from RES, the developer.


    The project, which is situated close to Blaengarw and Nant-y-Moel in Bridgend, received approval from the Welsh Ministers in September 2022.


    Notably, Upper Ogmore was the inaugural onshore wind initiative to undergo evaluation through the Developments of National Significance planning process.


    RES had been actively advancing the plans for this seven-turbine wind farm and energy storage project since 2017, operating from its Cardiff office.


    John Boyce, RES development director for wind in the UK & Ireland, said “We’re really pleased to partner with Marubeni to help deliver Upper Ogmore, a project that will produce clean, secure electricity for thousands of homes.”


    “This month the world experienced its three hottest days on record and it is projects like Upper Ogmore that will deliver the practical solutions to climate change, while simultaneously creating cheap electricity and investing millions in the Welsh economy.”


    Tomoki Nishino, Marubeni Europower president and chief executive, added “RES has a long and proud history of developing, constructing and operating renewable energy projects in the UK, as well as around the globe.”


    “That knowledge and experience is invaluable, so we know RES has developed a good project in Wales. Marubeni plans to sign an MoU with the UK government which envisages approximately £10bn of investment in the UK with its partners over the next 10 years.”


    “This project would be one of the forefront projects to realise our ambition.”
