SSE to finance Viking wind farm

In a deal announced between SSE Renewables and Viking Energy Shetland (VES) on 31 May, SSE will now provide all future financing to the proposed 450MW onshore wind farm.

SSE will bid for a Contract for Difference in this year’s auction round.

VES Chair Alan Bryce said: “This agreement on the funding of the Viking wind farm is excellent news and a major milestone on the road to a new renewables sector for Shetland.”
