Scottish Borders windfarm gets go-ahead

Scottish Borders windfarm gets go-ahead
An 11-turbine windfarm on the Scottish Borders has received planning permission.

Novera Energy now has permission on four cites following the announcement of consent being given for a project at Glenkerie in southern Scotland.

While the turbines which will be used at the site south of Biggar have not yet been selected, the board of Novera has claimed the development will have a capacity of between 22 and 27 megawatts.

"The approval of Glenkerie today highlights good progress of our wind portfolio and re-affirms our approach to development," said Rory Quinlan, chief financial officer of Novera.

The approval takes the company's capacity portfolio of production and approved sites to over 100MW.

Construction is set to commence in 2009, with production starting in 2010. ScottishPower is to provide the grid connection.

The company is currently building a 30MW wind farm in East Riding, Yorkshire and consent for a 40-60MW project in Argyll as well as its first commissioned windfarm near Powys.
