The German turbine manufacturer will install 12 of its MM92 turbines and nine of its MM100 machines on the A'Chruach wind development in Argyll and Bute in the west of Scotland. Both turbines have a capacity of 2.05MW.

Work is expected to start on the project towards the end of 2015, with commissioning due in the first quarter of 2016. The developer said Senvion will also provide ongoing turbine maintenance at the development for an undisclosed period.

Infinis also revealed that it has secured a six-year, £52 million (EUR 66 million) financing for the project. The facilities have been arranged with the Royal Bank of Scotland and National Australia Bank.

The developer put the project on hold in August due to uncertainty related to the Scottish independence referendum. But it told Windpower Monthly in October that it would go ahead with the development following the "no" vote.
