The construction of a wind farm with a capacity of 10MW has started near Huntly in Aberdeenshire, east Scotland.

The Cairnborrow Wind Farm will consist of five turbines, which are expected to generate enough electricity to power more than 6,300 homes.

The project is scheduled to be completed by late 2016. It will be operated by ENGIE which is also building the facility in partnership with West Coast Energy.

Paul Vernon, Project Manager at West Coast Energy said: “Cairnborrow is a significant renewable energy development for Aberdeenshire. As well as making an important contribution to Scotland’s carbon reduction targets, and providing circa £13,000,000 of infrastructure investment, the local community will also benefit via our community benefit funding commitment.

“We hope to complete the construction of the wind farm as quickly and efficiently as possible to minimise any potential disruption to local people.”
