FREASDAIL WIND FARM
RES has planning permission to build a new wind farm at Freasdail Forest, 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.
We are confident that this is a very good site for a wind farm and that a sensitively-designed project will be an asset to the area.
