RWE Innogy Removes Unexploded Ordnance from Gwynt y Môr Site

RWE Innogy UK is preparing to remove three objects, identified as unexploded ordnance, from the seabed within the construction area of the Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm.

Construction activity is continuing in the offshore site, with vessels complying with a 250 metre exclusion zone, which is currently in place in Liverpool Bay around the objects.

RWE is working with a number of contractors and consultants to identify the safest method of removal, and applications have already been submitted for the appropriate licences.

It is not uncommon for unexploded ordnance to be found on the seabed and standard procedures are in place to deal with potential “UXO targets”, as they are often referred.
