FREASDAIL WIND FARM
RES has has now started to construct Freasdail Wind Farm, located on the Kintyre Peninsula east of the A83 at Gartnagrenach and South of Whitehouse, in Argyll and Bute.
Freasdail Wind Farm will comprise of 11 turbines measuring up to 100m high to the tip of the blade. The wind farm will have total installed capacity of approximately 22 MW.
We started our initial site investigations at Freasdail Wind Farm looking at a 16 turbine scheme with a height to tip of 125m. From the results of the surveys, in addition to feedback from consultees and the community, we reduced the turbines from 16 to 11 and the tip height from 125m to 100m.
Fresdail Wind Farm has been a sensitively-designed project and thanks to the local construction spend as well as the Community Benefit Fund it will continue to be an asset to the local area for the next 25 years.
