Clashindarroch II Wind Farm Proposal

An onshore wind farm, we are exploring the shared ownership opportunity on this project.

Vattenfall is exploring the potential for the addition of a 70MW wind farm to the north east of the existing operational Clashindarroch Wind Farm near Huntly, Aberdeenshire. The layout consists of 14 turbines, each with up to a 5 megawatt (MW) capacity and with a tip height of 180m.

Next steps

Scoping request submitted

A further Scoping Report was recently submitted to the Scottish Government to seek feedback on the proposed tip height of 180m and organisations such as Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish Environmental Protection Agency and Aberdeenshire Council  have been consulted. Download a copy of this report below.

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is being prepared to assess and measure the anticipated effects on the environment of the proposed Clashindarroch II Wind Farm and this will be submitted as part of a Section 36 Electricity Act application to the Scottish Government in early 2019.

Vattenfall will hold information sessions for local residents and community interests around the time that the submission is made.
