BayWa r.e is extending its onshore wind pipeline in the United Kingdom with the purchase of the High Constellation wind farm in Scotland from Blue Energy.
The planned ten turbine wind farm is situated on the Kintyre Peninsula, about 20 km south of Tarbert and 30 km north of Campbeltown, Scotland. When installed, the capacity would be approximately 50 MW.
“We are delighted to add this project to our portfolio in the UK and to continue our successful role in project development in Scotland. Blue Energy has been fantastic to work with, and with them, we are perfectly positioned to take the project into the next development phase”Christine McGregor, head of commercial at BayWa r.e. UK.
“We’re very pleased about this first successful collaboration with BayWa r.e. and look forward to establishing an ongoing relationship with their team. We are currently exploring possibilities for future collaboration on other large-scale wind farms in Scotland.“Simon Foy, commercial director at Blue Energy.
“BayWa r.e. is fully committed to helping to drive forward the growth of renewables in the UK and Ireland. To date, we have developed projects in the UK, with an installed capacity of 685 MW, and manage over 2400 MW of wind and solar capacity. All helping to contribute to the UK government’s commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. But we must now see the renewable transition move forward at much greater pace if we are to stand any chance of averting the most catastrophic effects of climate change.“Gordon MacDougall, managing director at BayWa r.e.
