SLR is providing technical environmental assessment for the two wind farm sites: Wied Rini and an offshore proposal at Is-Sikka l’Bajda, a rocky bank 1.5 km north-east of Malta.
The 10.2 MW Wied Rini Wind Farm will consist of 12 wind turbines, and Sikka l’Bajda would produce up to 95 MW.
SLR Principal Bob Edmonds, says: “SLR has had an agreement with AIS Environmental Ltd, to provide environmental consultancy services across the Mediterranean from AIS’s base in Malta, for the past 13 years.
“It is fantastic that we have won the bid to provide environmental services for these proposed wind farms, which not only demonstrates SLR’s capabilities in the renewable energy sector but also helps towards the Maltese Government’s renewable energy targets.”
The Maltese Governments has committed to produce 10% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.
