Vattenfall in South West Scotland

Supplier Opportunities 

Supplier Stories

Celebrating the businesses helping Vattenfall build a fossil fuel free future in South West Scotland.

As South Kyle Wind Farm takes shape, Vattenfall is shining the spotlight on our local supply chain and thanking the many businesses from across the region and throughout Scotland who are helping us to achieve a fossil free future.

Spotlight On

This week’s spotlight is on Foundation Scotland.

Once fully constructed, South Kyle Wind Farm will generate a community benefit fund worth around £38 million over the project’s lifetime for the Carsphairn, Dalmellington, New Cumnock and Patna areas. 

To help ensure the fund meets local priorities, Vattenfall appointed Foundation Scotland, a leading Scottish charity with in-depth expertise and local knowledge, to work with local communities and help them shape the South Kyle Community Investment Fund.
