Dounreay Tri floating wind farm in doubt as developer collapses

Plans for a floating windfarm demonstrator 3.7 miles off Dounreay in Caithness are in disarray after the developer’s collapse into administration.

Dounreay Tri – the company formed by Sweden-based green-energy investor Hexicon for the project – applied for planning permission for the twin-turbine, 10 megawatt (MW) scheme last November.

Highland councillors backed the plans in February and the Scottish Government followed suit in March. Melvich Community Council had objected to the scheme, saying the turbines would ruin the sea view many people seek in moving to the area and could have the knock-on effect of threatening the village’s school and care home.

Brian May and Linda Barr, of Glasgow-based accountancy firm French Duncan, were appointed as administrators of Dounreay Tri at Edinburgh Sheriff Court earlier this month.

French Duncan could not be contacted yesterday.

Dounreay Tri said earlier this year it had awarded the construction contract for its development to Global Energy Group and struck a deal with Scrabster harbour to service the scheme.
