RWE has welcomed the approval of its planning application for Clachaig Glen Wind Farm by the Scottish Government following a Public Inquiry. The 14-turbine site will be located on the Mull of Kintyre in Argyll & Bute and will be capable of producing around 47.6MW of electricity. It is anticipated the project could be in operation by mid July 2024.
Jonn Barnes, Project Manager, at RWE Renewables said: “We’re delighted that The Scottish Ministers have granted consent for our wind farm proposal at Clachaig Glen. We have worked for several years to design this project, during which time we have taken on board considerations from many stakeholders as well as feedback received from the local community. We look forward to working closely with the Council and local residents going forward.”
The consent for the wind farm is for up to 14 wind turbine generators at a maximum tip height of 126.5m. Clachaig Glen is within the Scottish National Forest Estate and is located in West Argyll in Scotland, close to the Deucheran Hill site.
