Delayed Firth estuary wind farm loses subsidy deal 

Credit:  BBC News | 12 May 2016 | www.bbc.co.uk ~~

Plans for a huge wind farm in the outer Forth estuary are in doubt after the project hit a series of delays and lost a vital subsidy deal.

The Neart na Gaoithe wind farm is the subject of a legal challenge by RSPB Scotland, which argues the scheme is an unacceptable threat to seabirds.

The Court of Session is carrying out a judicial review.

The Low Carbon Contracts Company can terminate subsidy deals if schemes fail to meet agreed timetables.

Mainstream Renewable Power, the company behind the project, told BBC Scotland it strongly disputed the validity of the termination notice.

A spokesman said the company would continue to work hard to ensure the £2bn project will be built as planned.
