Statkraft set to build and sell its first UK merchant wind project

Statkraft has announced plans to construct the 43MW Windy Rig wind farm in Scotland.

Published on 20 December, the company has also agreed to transfer ownership of the 38MW Twentyshilling wind farm post-construction to Greencoat UK Wind, subject to a final investment decision on the project in early 2020.

Located in Dumfries and Galloway, both projects are subsidy free and were originally developed by Element Power, which Statkraft acquired in September 2018.
