The operator of a wind farm in Scotland hosted a day of entertainment for the community to mark the official opening.

Norwegian firm Statkraft’s 66.7MW Berry Burn wind farm in Moray includes 29 turbines which can generate enough clean electricity to power more than 43,000 homes.

Nearly 500 people from the community visited the site at the official opening, which had attractions such as kite flying displays, balloon modelling, face painting and a mini Highland Games and Highland dancing.

Sergio Castedo, Director at Statkraft UK said: “We have worked in partnership with the community every step of the way regarding the development via consultations, open days, presentations and other activities and we aim to maintain a strong and participative relationship throughout Berry Burn’s operation.”

The wind farm began commercial operations in April this year.
