Windfarm company hopes to build up to 26 turbines at Dale of Walls

An English-based renewable energy company is looking to build a windfarm at Dale of Walls with up to 26 turbines.

Inazin has already spoken to the Walls and Sandness Community Council to gauge initial opinion about its proposal for hill land which is part of the Vaila and Burrastow estates, owned by Henry Anderton.

Meetings were due to be held in Walls and Sandness this week but have been postponed.

Community council chairman Ian Walterson said Inazin was still in the process of deciding which size and type of turbine to propose for the windfarm before returning to consult the communities.

A spokeswoman for Inazin confirmed the company’s interest in Shetland but said the project was a long way from reaching the planning application stage.

The company is involved in developing windfarms in Scotland with a total capacity of 100 megawatts and claims experience in developing over 10 times that amount of windpower in the UK.

Inazin is one of a number of ventures established by renewables entrepreneur Mark Shorrock, including Scottish company Wind Energy, investment companies Low Carbon Investors, the Low Carbon Accelerator Fund and Low Carbon Solar Holdings.

Controversially, the Low Carbon Accelerator Fund was the investor in the Scottish small turbines company Proven which pulled out suddenly, precipitating Proven’s collapse after technical problems with one of its turbines last year.

A number of other developers have been looking for windfarm sites in Shetland. All significant developments depend on the Viking Energy windfarm going ahead and bringing the interconnector power cable to the mainland to send electricity to the National Grid.
