RWE today confirmed that its Strathy Wood Onshore Wind Farm in Scotland has received planning consent, following a Public Inquiry into the proposals.

The decision was made by Scottish Ministers, and the consent is for a project with a maximum installed capacity of up to 54.6MW, including 13 turbines with a maximum tip height of 180m. Subject to financial processes the project could be operational by 2024.

Jodie Gunn, Head of Scotland UK Onshore Wind Development RWE, “We would like to say a huge thankyou to everyone involved. It has been a long-standing project and one which we know will support Scotland’s ambitious targets for renewable generation. We would also like to thank our local stakeholders and communities who have provided useful feedback throughout the planning processes. We now look forward to working together with communities and the supply chain on the next steps of the project, and realising the potential environmental and economic benefits it could bring for Scotland.”

RWE, one of the world’s leading renewable energy companies, has underlined its commitment to UK onshore wind as part of a long-term investment into renewables of around £15billion by 2030. The company has a successful track record of delivering onshore wind in the UK and has a portfolio of 32 projects which are already operating. RWE has a further 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of onshore wind in development which, it says, will play an important part in delivering the UK’s net zero ambitions.
