In June 2015, PNE WIND UK Limited was acquired by Brookfield Renewable, and is now known as Brookfield Renewable UK Limited. All materials and applications related to projects will now be under the Brookfield brand.
In January 2013, an application was submitted to the Scottish Government under Section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 to develop the Kennoxhead Wind Farm, on land south of the A70, near the village of Glespin in South Lanarkshire. A copy of the planning application is available here.
Further information in the form of an addendum, including for a reduction in turbine numbers from an originally proposed 26 to 19 and an increase in tip height from 126.5m to 145m, and associated ancillary infrastructure was submitted to Scottish Ministers. The information submitted includes Supplementary Environmental Impact Information which reports the results of a further specialist Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) studies undertaken of the mpdified proposals for the Kennoxhead Wind Farm. A copy of the Non- Technical Summary is available to download below. The application was subsequently approved.
The initial Kennoxhead Wind Farm layout comprised 50 turbines with tip heights of 145m, resulting in an installed capacity of 180MW. Following further completion of our design and assessment work, and feedback received via the consultation process, our final layout comprises of 19 turbines with tip heights of 145m resulting in an installed capacity of approx 64.6 MW.
A Community Liaison Group (CLG) was created to ensure that the proposed development involves local people and takes account of their concerns. Current members can be found here. CLG minutes are available to download below. For more information regarding community development please contact us on 0131 243 9100, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
