Alltwalis Wind Farm, Wales

Twentyshilling Hill Wind Farm

United Kingdom / Wind power / Project

Twentyshilling Hill Wind Farm is a subsidy-free wind farm project located approximately 4.8km south of Sanquhar. The 9 turbine wind farm was granted planning permission by Dumfries and Galloway Council in December 2014.

If you are a local supplier or would like to recommend a local company that may be able to get involved in the construction phase, please contact us to be added to the construction news mailing list.
 

Project progress

Statkraft is delighted to announce that work has commenced at Twentyshilling Hill. Further information is outlined below. The timeline is subject to change due to weather, environmental and other factors out with our control.

 

Who's who?

Statkraft has appointed Scottish company RJ McLeod to undertake the civil engineering works with Alex Jackson leading the team.

Rob Brocklehurst from Ionic Consulting is supporting Statkraft as owner’s engineer during construction. With construction expected to take around 16 months, the project is due to reach operational stage in late 2021.

Doug Wilson will be managing the project communications throughout the construction of the wind farm.

 

Community

Statkraft will keep the local community informed throughout construction through regular updates in The Nithsdale Times, and continued contact with the Community Liaison Group which was established during development.

The project will deliver a fund of approximately £190,000 per year for community groups and initiatives, and discussions around how this will be managed are taking place with the Community Liaison Group. For any comments or questions during construction, please contact Doug Wilson on 07542 754642 or doug.wilson@statkraft.co.uk.
