Vattenfall will host public exhibitions in August to unveil the final plans for the reconfiguration of their previously approved Aultmore wind farm project in Moray, Scotland.
The initial 29MW project, sanctioned by Moray Council in 2014, has been modified due to advancements in turbine technology.
The updated proposal features 16 turbines with a blade tip height of 200 meters, increasing capacity to 105.6MW.
These changes could lead to a community benefit fund of approximately £18.4 million over its 35-year operational span.
Following earlier discussions in March 2022 about the preliminary design, Vattenfall aims to engage the community once more with the final design at the upcoming August exhibitions.
Lucy Blake, Senior project manager for Vattenfall, said “We are very grateful to everyone who shared their views with us on the early design during our consultation last year.”
“Their feedback, together with our detailed environmental and technical surveys and key consultee input, has helped inform and shape the proposal.”
“We feel that we have made meaningful improvements to the scheme as a result and look forward to presenting the final design at our upcoming August exhibitions.”
“In addition to the sizeable community fund that the project could provide, we want to work closely with the local supply chain.”
“Independent analysis at our South Kyle Wind Farm in East Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway has found that the wind farm’s development and construction spend within the local area amounts to £44m.”
“We want to build on this approach at Aultmore so that we can maximise the benefits to the local area.”
