Energy Isles Wind Farm
Energy Isles has submitted a planning application to Scottish Ministers under Section 36 of the Electricity Act for the erection of a 29-turbine wind farm and associated infrastructure sited in the north of Yell, with the potential to generate up to 200 MW of clean electricity.
Energy Isles is a consortium of over fifty mainly Shetland-based businesses with a strong desire to ensure that the benefits of Shetland's emerging new renewable energy sector are retained as far as possible within the isles.
Energy Isles was formed in 2014 to develop a plan for a wind farm in the north of Yell. It has now submitted a planning application to Scottish Ministers under Section 36 of the Electricity Act.
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.
