Statkraft to push ahead with South Lanarkshire windfarm

Europe’s largest producer of renewable energy is pressing ahead with the development of an onshore wind project in Scotland.

Statkraft is working on the Andershaw windfarm in South Lanarkshire following the successful construction of the 36MW Berry Burn windfarm.

Construction of Andershaw is expected to begin later this month starting with work to construct the roads, turbines bases and substation.

The majority of the civil works are expected to be completed by summer next year.

R J McLeod have been appointed to undertake the civil infrastructure works and Powersystems UK will undertake the electrical infrastructure works.

The project will use 11 Vestas MW wind turbines and are expected to be full commissioned by late next year.

Once operational, Andershaw Wind Farm will make a valuable contribution to Scotland’s ambitious renewable energy targets, providing clean, green electricity to meet the needs of approximately 20,200 homes.

Renewable UK said earlier today Scotland was leading the way with onshore wind, while Enlgand was trailblazing ahead with offshore energy.
