Windfarm scheduled for construction in Scotland

Windfarm scheduled for construction in Scotland
RWE npower has revealed that it is to move ahead with proposals for a 16MW windfarm in Scotland.

The renewable energy company has been granted planning permission to construct the eight-turbine facility at Kildrummy Estate in Lumsden, Aberdeenshire, following a public inquiry that took place last year.

Mark Crawford, manager of the project, explained that the windfarm will help the Scottish government to produce 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources in 2020.

"We are delighted at this decision. This has been a long and challenging journey through the local planning system," he added.

The scheme is expected to be completed by 2010 with renewable energy power generation scheduled to start the following year.

It is intended that the Kildrummy Estate windfarm will provide electricity for 7,300 households.

RWE npower operates 19 hydroelectric power stations and 22 windfarms in the UK.
