Developers behind a £50million windfarm at the edge of the Cairngorms National Park are offering north-east firms the chance to cash-in on the project.

Developers behind a £50million windfarm at the edge of the Cairngorms National Park are offering north-east firms the chance to cash-in on the project.

Energy firm Vattenfall already has permission to build 18 turbines at Clashindarroch Forest, between Dufftown and Rhynie, and is now aiming to get the scheme under way.

The development – which the company claims could power nearly 24,300 homes – was approved by Aberdeenshire Council in December 2010, after years of planning wrangling.

Now the firm has launched a search for suppliers and contractors to help deliver the scheme, and will hold a special event targeting local businesses this week.

The supply chain event will take place in Huntly’s Castle Hotel tomorrow, and more than 40 businesses have already signed up to find out more.

They will have the chance to meet contractors as well as the Vattenfall project team to find out more about the scheme, the various opportunities available and how to get involved.

Councillors approved plans for the 18-turbine scheme two years ago, despite concerns that the 361ft masts would have a detrimental visual impact on the area.

The proposals hit repeated setbacks, including calls to remove three of the masts from Cloiche Dubh hill.

There were also concerns put forward by campaign group Friends of the Clash that the windfarm could be extended over the years, because previous applications for as many as 35 turbines had previously been tabled.

The supply chain event will run from 9.30am-3.30pm tomorrow.
