SSE Renewables buys Dunmaglass Windfarm

RES has reached agreement to sell Dunmaglass Wind Farm to SSE
Renewables, the renewable energy development division of SSE.

Please see the following letter from RES to Strathnairn Community Council.

We are writing to advise that RES has reached agreement to sell Dunmaglass Wind Farm to SSE Renewables, the renewable energy development division of SSE. We wish to re-assure you that SSE Renewables will honour all of the commitments that RES has made in connection with the project. Furthermore, we can confirm that the finalised plans for the wind farm have not changed. The number, location and size of the turbines will remain the same, along with the access route for the wind farm
construction traffic. In addition, the public road improvement works that are currently being undertaken on the B851 will be completed by RES in the coming months. SSE Renewables will begin the main construction works later this year which are expected to be completed during 2016. Prior to the main construction works beginning, RES and SSE intend to hold an information day to enable you to meet us and ask any specific questions you may have. We will confirm the details for this in due
course. As you will be aware, the Dunmaglass project, which will have an installed capacity of 99MW, received planning consent in 2010. The project fits well with other renewable developments that SSE already has in the Great Glen area, and SSE will build on this opportunity to ensure the benefits to the local area are fully realised, including further development of a local supply chain and increased co-ordination of
transport activities. Further benefits are likely to include the creation of new jobs and skills development in the area.
RES and SSE Renewables will be working very closely over the coming months to ensure that the handover of the site is managed effectively and responsibly and we will continue to keep you updated on the progress of the works associated with the wind farm. RES is committed to completing the current improvement works to the B851 and will continue to work closely with the local community on these works, which are anticipated to be completed by the summer.
Should you have any further questions relating to the works on the B851, please contact Rachel Anderson from RES via e-mail (rachel.anderson@res-ltd.com) or via telephone on 0141 404 5531. For any queries relating to the project, please contact Marianne Townsley, SSE’s Liaison Manager, via e-mail
(marianne.townsley@sse.com) or via telephone on 01463 728069.
Yours sincerely
Marianne Townsley
SSE Liaison Manager
