Plans for eight wind turbines to be considered

Filed under: U.K. — National Wind Watch @ 7:41 am

Plans have been lodged to build eight 300ft wind turbines near Alford.

NPower Renewables wants to create the windfarm at Clashnarae Hill, Kildrummy.

The plans will be considered by the Marr Area committee of Aberdeenshire councillors when officers have considered the application.

The North-east is already home to several windfarms.

A £31 million windfarm opened in July 2005 in Glens of Foudland, near Huntly.

And plans for 23 turbines two miles off Aberdeen beach are expected to be progressed next year.

While a Scottish-based consortium, led by oil firm Talisman and Scottish and Southern Energy, is behind a pilot scheme to create a 200-turbine wind farm 12 miles offshore, scheduled to be done early in 2007.
