Gordonbush Extension Wind Farm Generates First Power

Gordonbush Extension Wind Farm is generating first power just weeks after the delivery of the eleven Siemens Gamesa wind turbines to site was completed.

Situated 10 kilometres north east of Brora in Sutherland in the Scottish Highlands, the first four turbines started turning this week and generating power. When fully complete Gordonbush Extension, which is being constructed by SSE Renewables, the UK’s leading renewable energy company, will generate 38MW of wind-powered electricity, enough to power 46,000 UK homes each year.

Over the expected 25-year lifetime of the wind farm, Gordonbush Extension Wind Farm will save over 37,000 tonnes annually of harmful carbon dioxide emissions, helping the UK to transition towards a Net Zero carbon future.

The development is the first to be built by SSE Renewables on a merchant basis, which means no subsidies or CfD support were used to finance the project.

The key milestone of first power at the Gordonbush Extension site has been reached by the SSE Renewables project delivery team after overcoming the worst Scottish winter weather in years.
