SSE withdraw Dalnessie wind farm application  

Credit:  Published: 21/02/2014 | www.northern-times.co.uk ~~

SSE has announced it is to withdraw its planning application for the 27-turbine Dalnessie wind farm near Lairg and the proposed extension to Fairburn wind farm in Glen Orrin, Ross-shire.

This is just days after the north planning committee rejected an application by Wind Prospect Development to create a 13-turbine farm at Tressady, Rogart.

Reviews of both Dalnessie and Glen Orrin proposals by SSE, have concluded that continued investment in progressing them is no longer financially viable.

Colin Nicol, SSE Director of Onshore Renewables, said: “SSE continues to have a good pipeline of very strong onshore renewable developments across Scotland. Each project is dealt with on a case-by-case basis and the decision to end Dalnessie and Fairburn Extension means that we can redirect resource onto the best projects in our portfolio, ensuring they more effectively deliver the best value renewable energy for the consumer and SSE, consistent with our commitment to being a responsible developer.”
