E.ON and Dong Energy Cancel £100 Million Welsh Windfarm, an Industrial Info News Alert

GALWAY, IRELAND--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - Written by Martin Lynch, European News Editor for Industrial Info (Galway, Ireland) -- Plans by E.ON AG (OTC:EONGY) (Dusseldorf, Germany) and Dong Energy (Fredricia, Denmark) to build a £100 million ($163.6 million) offshore windfarm in the Bristol channel off the south coast of Wales have been scrapped. The Scarweather Sands project, five kilometres off the Porthcawl coast, was to occupy a 10-square-kilometre area populated with up to 30 turbines, each standing 120 metres tall. Installed capacity for the windfarm was estimated to be 108 megawatts, which would have generated enough electricity for approximately 82,000 homes. The windfarm was scheduled to be commissioned next year. However, both E.ON and Dong Energy have now claimed that the project is no longer financially viable.
