Together with SWS Inchincoosh Windfarm Ltd we have developed a ten turbine 8.5 mWwind farm at Sillahertane. During June 2008 construction on the project began with a new access route to transport the turbines to their locations on the property. During January 2009 the turbines began generating electricity into the natioanl grid.

 

Thanks to the nature of the site the turbines will not be visible from 85% of the surrounding area in a 20km square. Most of the wind turbines are in the softwood plantation planted in 1990. Areas of the sitka spruce plantation, where the turbine will be located, that need to be cleared, will be restocked with suitable native tree and bush species.
