Objections dropped to wind farm off Aberdeen  

Credit:  BBC News | www.bbc.co.uk 2 October 2012 ~~

Several organisations have dropped opposition to plans for an 11 turbine wind farm off Donald Trump’s Aberdeenshire golf course.

The £230m project is a joint venture by utility company Vattenfall, engineering firm Technip and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (Areg).

The Ministry of Defence (MoD), National Air Traffic Services (Nats), Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and RSPB Scotland have agreed conditions.

Mr Trump’s course is at Menie.

European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) spokesman Iain Todd said: “The removal of a number of objections is another significant step forward for the scheme.

“The EOWDC partners hope for a green light on its consent application from the Scottish government later this year.”

‘Destructive project’

Mr Trump claims the turbines would spoil the sea views for golfers on the course.

He said in a statement: “This is a terrible development for Scotland and the entire tourism industry.

“We will litigate this destructive project for as long as necessary.”
