Welcome to our second Project Erebus public exhibition and consultation.
We do hope you take the opportunity to tell us your thoughts on what is Wales’ first floating offshore wind project. Engaging with and consulting coastal communities is an essential part of our approach to project development as we progress to planned operation in 2026.
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, we have decided to continue with a virtual approach to our exhibition and consultation to provide details of the proposed project, progress to date, and to answer any questions you may have. However, we will also be carrying out two in-person events alongside our virtual exhibition. These will be held in Hundleton Church Hall on 14th July from 2pm – 6pm followed by a second on 29th July in Angle Village Hall from 2pm – 7pm.
Please take your time viewing the information we have on display. We suggest you view the information boards chronologically and have numbered them accordingly. We have also provided videos, images and photomontages to help you understand our proposals.
We are formally accepting comments as part of this process until August 29th via our feedback form, however we keen ensure that you are able to share your views with us at any time.
Please do check out our website, FAQs and contact us through email@example.com if you have any questions or feedback once the formal consultation period has closed.
