E.ON plans 234MW of Scottish onshore projects

UK: E.ON is planning to develop three onshore wind farms in south-west Scotland with a combined capacity of 234MW.

E.ON said it was begining consultations with local residents next month. It did not reveal any other details about the projects other than they will consist of turbines in the 3MW range.

Much of E.ON's UK wind capacity is bound up in offshore projects, such as the 1GW London Array, 180MW Robin Rigg, Scotland, and the 300MW Humber Gateway, England.

The three projects are:

  • Benbrack (81MW) - between Carsphairn and Dalmellington, with around 27 turbines.
  • Enoch Hill (69MW) - near New Cumnock,with around 23 turbines.
  • Lorg (84MW) - around 10km south of New Cumnock, with around 28 turbines.
Speaking about the consultations, Nick Taylor, E.ON project developer, said: "The aim of this activity is to keep the local community informed about our future plans and allow residents ample opportunity to get involved and have their say. These events are just the beginning of a much longer and more in-depth series of activity with the local community."
