A director of Greencoat UK Wind has tendered his resignation from the company.

Daniel Badger has stepped down in his role as non-executive director after six years at the UK renewable firm.

Tim Ingram, chairman said: “On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Daniel Badger for his services as a non-executive director of the company since his appointment in 2013.

“His valuable contribution has seen the company and its portfolio grow.”

SSE sold a 49.9% stake in two Scottish wind farms to the renewable infrastructure fund Greencoat for £635 million in February.

The deal involves the 66 turbine Stronelairg wind farm near Fort Augustus and the 33 turbine Dunmaglass development, 15 miles south of Inverness.

The stakes equate to 160.6 megawatts of capacity.
