Slickly Wind Farm

The proposed Slickly Wind Farm is located 1.5km east of Slickly and approximately 8km south west of John O’Groats on land adjacent to the operational Stroupster Wind Farm.

The proposal is for up to 11 turbines with a tip height of approximately 135 m that has the potential to generate up to 37.4 MW of clean electricity.

Slickly Wind Farm would represent a natural extension to the existing cluster of wind turbines at Stroupster. The location is considered suitable for a wind farm due to its high wind speeds. Statkraft hopes to achieve this through careful design with Stroupster and avoiding cumulative effects by ensuring turbine height and proportions work with the existing turbines.

As a responsible developer and operator of renewable energy projects, our approach to development involves consulting widely with local communities. Our proposal is still at an early stage and your views are very important to us and will be a key consideration when finalising the design and layout of the wind farm.

Public consultation events

We are holding four public consultation events to allow local residents to meet the team and to view and comment on the proposal:

Statkraft has built its reputation on putting communities first. We want our developments to have a positive and lasting impact on those who live and work in the surrounding areas. We will establish a Slickly Wind Farm Community Liaison Group and we have had initial meetings with representatives from the surrounding Community Councils. The Liaison Group will provide a forum where local community representatives can feedback your valued opinions on all aspects of the project and receive updates on the proposed development.

Throughout the process Statkraft is committed to continue the engagement and dialogue with all involved and will update the surrounding communities as the development continues to progress.
