Royal Mint “Daffodil” Wind Turbine

Meet “Delilah” the 214ft high daffodil-inspired wind turbine installed by the Sirius Group for the Royal Mint to provide green energy and an iconic landmark at their Llantrisant coin production facility and new £7million visitor centre in South Wales.


Sirius provided a full design and build package to the Royal Mint with Sirius Environmental providing earthworks, civil engineering design and project management. Sirius Remediation undertook the earthworks, foundation, access and electrical installation works supported by APS Ltd – electrical sub-contractors for the Royal Mint.


The project was facilitated by our project partners Infinite Renewables who have been working with the Royal Mint on this project for a number of years.

Sirius secures consent for LNG refuelling facilities

Following the Government’s announcements and commitment to reduce road vehicle emissions and make transport cleaner, Sirius Planning have recently obtained planning permission for the installation of Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) refuelling facilities in the East Riding of Yorkshire and South Derbyshire.


New, stand-alone vertical LNG storage tanks and dedicated dispenser pumps will be installed on existing refuelling stations, which will provide low carbon road transport fuel for medium and heavy goods vehicles under a commercial supply agreement.


Freight and logistics operators are increasingly moving their fleet vehicles from diesel to LNG and other biofuels, as the development of and use of LNG as a road transport fuel, provides substantial reduction in green-house gas emissions and climate change benefits through reductions in carbon, sulphur, particulate matter and nitrogen oxides; and reducing future oil dependence and energy scarcity provision.


These facilities form part of a wider programme by a global road fuel supplier to deploy a network of LNG refuelling stations across the UK, of which Sirius have been commissioned to provide planning consultancy services.


Sirius Renewable Energy’s portfolio of 7 wind turbines and 1 solar farm achieved record energy production levels this autumn, producing over 1.15MWh during the month of October, which is enough energy to supply 3,900 homes with all their electricity for the month.


At the end of November total production from the fleet broke through the 14million kwh barrier, representing a CO2 saving of over 6,000  tonnes since the first turbine was installed at Haregrove Farm in July 2015.


The Sirius Renewable Energy portfolio is set to expand in 2018 with the development of further wind turbines providing power to industrial users through bespoke private wire arrangements.

South Wales Solar Farm Planning

Here at Sirius we strive to create powerful partnerships with other organisations in order to build a portfolio of renewable energy projects for a more positive future for local communities. To this end, we’ve teamed up with SBC Renewable Ltd on a number of projects, including this latest solar farm situated on land at Corntown Farm near Bridgend in South Wales.

Stormy West Solar Farm Planning

Environmental assessments and planning permission

Over the years, Sirius Planning and Sirius Environmental (previously Stratus Environmental) has earned a great reputation for our proactive and effective support when it comes to helping clients to move forward with the renewable energy projects. Often, we combine a variety of our services and specialist knowledge in order to secure the necessary planning permission needed for these developments.

Our latest success story is a 5MW solar farm at Stormy West Landfill Site near Bridgend in South Wales, where we worked alongside our partners at SCB Renewables to identify and conduct a range of assessments in order to achieve planning consent.

Penycae Solar Farm Planning

Another successful project with our partners at SBC Renewables, we recently worked on a planning application for a 5MW solar farm development to be located at Penycae near Wrexham.
