Amec to sell off Lewis wind farm  

The Lewis wind farm project is up for sale as developer Amec gets rid of its wind-farm business it is reported.

The multi-national has declined to comment on reports that it recruited corporate consultants Rothschild to organise bids for its exit strategy out of the wind energy game.

Amec Wind Energy has a 50% share in the 181 turbine Lewis Wind Farm and has led the project over the past five years. British Energy owns the other half of a proposed scheme.

Though the Scottish Government refused planning permission for the £ 700 million, 181 turbine scheme in April, there is an expectation that a giant, albeit scaled down, windfarm can still be built on the Lewis moor.

If so, then the estimated £ 20 million price tag for Amec Wind could increase if planning consent for Lewis was achieved.
