Airvolution first introduced the Ackron proposal to residents at the first exhibition in Melvich. Established in 2010, it developed Scottish wind farms solely for Statkraft to build, own and operate from 2017.
In August 2019 Airvolution was acquired by Statkraft and all members of the Airvolution team are now Statkraft employees.
