E.on Secures Council Nod For 32.4-MW Wind Farm In ScotlandJuly 9 (Renewables Now) – Scotland’s Dumfries and Galloway Council has awarded planning permission to E.on SE’s (ETR:EOAN) 32.4-MW Lorg wind project, the German utility said on Friday.

To be located near the Southern Upland Way, east of Carsphairn, the wind park will consist of nine turbines, which will be installed in both Dumfries and Galloway and East Ayrshire Council areas. The project, itself, was initially launched in 2012 but faced several years of delays due to environmental concerns and objections related to its potential impact on the local area.

E.on’s initial proposal was for a 84-MW wind park but the plan was later changed to contain as many as 15 turbines with a combined capacity of 49.5MW.

Earlier this year, the German company secured access track consent for the Lorg project from the East Ayrshire Council, it said.

Vattenfall To Outline Aberdeen Bay Wind Farm Opportunities

Wind farm developer Vattenfall will outline the potential supply chain opportunities to UK Subsea companies tomorrow as part of the Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm project hook up.

Adam Ezzamel, Vattenfall’s project manager of the development, also known as European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC), will speak publicly about the opportunities available to subsea firms when the development goes ‘live’ later in the summer.

Organised by Subsea UK, the event will feature presentations by Mr Ezzamel and Morag McCorkindale, team leader of international trade and investment at Aberdeen City Council on behalf of Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG).

The event is to be held at The Village Hotel in Kingswells, Aberdeen.

The eleven turbine, 93.2MW development is expected to create cross-border business opportunities for both Northern Europe and Scottish firms in the global offshore wind, wave and tidal markets.

Neil Gordon, Subsea UK chief executive said: “This is an excellent opportunity for the subsea community to hear about – as well as get involved with – two innovative projects. The EOWDC is a pioneering project for the North-east and I hope companies take the time to hear how they can get involved.”
