Whitelee Wind Farm Scotland

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

This evening I visited the site of the new Whitelee Wind farm near Eaglesham, Scotland. This mammoth project was officially opened today. Key features:

  • Europe's largest wind farm comprising 140 turbines.
  • Current generating capacity 322 MW
  • Another 36 turbines planned which will increase output to 452 MW, enough to power 250,000 homes.
The video below gives an indication of the sheer size of the project.
