SSE rolls with 105MW Hadyard 2
Application for 31-turbine wind farm extension in South Ayrshire
Utility developer SSE has filed to build a 105MW wind farm extension near Girvan in the south-west of Scotland.
The company has submitted an application to the Scottish government for the 31-turbine Hadyard 2 project in South Ayrshire.
Hardware of up to 3.4MW will build on the eight-year-old first phase, which features 52 Siemens 2.3MW machines.
Hadyard 2 was scoped at up to 153MW but has come down during the consultation process. Tip heights at the extension are set at up to 126.5 metres.
Plans to extend the project were first reported in subscriber-only newsletter reNEWS in 2012.
