Plans submitted for Kilberry wind farm
PLANS for a wind farm on the hills of South Knapdale have been submitted to the Scottish Government.
EDF Energy, in association with developer Force 9 Energy, wants to install 14 turbines, producing up to 58.8MW.
If approved, Airigh Wind Farm, situated on land between Kilberry and West Loch Tarbert, would feature turbines with a maximum ground to blade tip height of 149.5 metres.
Andrew Smith, head of planning and development at Force 9 Energy, said: ‘I would like to thank the local community and all those groups whom we have liaised with over the last year.
‘Their feedback, together with significant environmental and technical survey work, has played an important part in shaping and informing the application. We will continue to liaise with a wide variety of stakeholders, including local community groups and councillors, during the application process and look forward to delivering the benefits of this project, including the proposed community benefit fund and separate community ownership opportunity, should the application be approved.’
Plans for Airigh Wind Farm can be viewed at various locations around the region.
