Fred Olsen Renewables has awarded the contracts for the supply of wind turbines and balance of plant on its Brockloch Rig Wind Farm development (otherwise known as ‘Windy Standard II’)  at Carsphairn Forest in Dumfries and Galloway.

Senvion has been selected to supply 30 of its 2.05MW turbines, while balance of plant works will be provided by Scotland-based Galliford Try Ltd.

David Brunt, Chief Executive, Olsen Renewables said: “We have been involved with Brockloch Rig Wind Farm since the beginning, through site selection, planning and construction, in line with our strategy to manage the full lifecycle.

“It is a key site in our UK portfolio which opens up a new geographical area for us and we are pleased that things are progressing well as we now move towards construction.”

Brockloch Rig Wind Farm is located near the village of the same name in Dumfries and Galloway and is close to the existing Windy Standard Wind Farm, originally developed by RWE npower renewables and Fred. Olsen Renewables.

It is expected that Brockloch Rig Wind Farm will be fully commissioned in early 2017.
