Six 5kW wind turbines installed at two waste water treatment works run by Scottish Water have been given the go ahead to start generating.

The R9000 turbines manufactured by Evance have been installed at plants in Broadford on the Isle of Skye and Raasay.

Another three turbines are set to be installed at the Portree treatment works next month.

Tim Sammon, Director of Evance Wind Turbines said: “These nine turbines will make a significant difference to the running cost of the water treatment works as they will generate nearly 50% of the electricity needed to operate these services.”

A ‘crowdfunded’ 9.2MW wind farm in Scotland is also about to start generating electricity.
