A 10-MW community wind farm near Huntly in Aberdeenshire has been officially opened by Scottish Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse.
The five turbine project has been built by Engie, the French renewable developer, in collaboration with the land-owner and Huntly and District Development Trust.
Over its 20-year scheduled lifespan, the wind farm will generate around £3 million for local projects in and around Huntly.
Cairnborrow Wind Farm – ENGIE’s most recent renewable energy project in the UK – is part of ENGIE’s broader 85MW renewable energy portfolio which includes solar capacity in addition to onshore wind. The company also owns and operates First Hydro, the 2GW pumped storage facility in North Wales.
