Highland firm wins wind farm work
HIGHLAND business RJ McLeod has been given the contract for civil engineering work at SSE’s 66-turbine Stronelairg wind farm near Fort Augustus.
Construction is expected to take just over two years, with the site fully operational by summer 2019. The wind farm had originally been given planning consent by the Scottish Government in 2014, but was challenged by the John Muir Trust. Following a legal battle it was eventually given the green light last year.
Sandy Osborne, RJ McLeod’s north director, said: ‘The project will enable us to continue to provide ongoing and additional employment.’
