Falck Renewables' 22MW Kingsburn wind farm in Scotland starts operations

CTBR Staff Writer Published 31 May 2016

Falck Renewables announced that Kingsburn Wind Farm, located 20 Km west of Stirling in central Scotland (United Kingdom) is, ahead of the forecasted time, now in operation.

The plant consists of nine N90/2500 Nordex wind turbines and has an installed capacity of 22.5 MW, generating approximately 75,000 MWh annually.

The renewable energy produced is the equivalent to the energy consumed by approximately 17,800 homes and will save almost
32,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

Falck Renewables CEO Toni Volpe said: "Less than one month after the opening of Spaldington wind farm operations in England, we are further consolidating our presence in the United Kingdom market with the start of the operations of Kingsburn in Scotland.

"In the first quarter of 2017, we will reach 413 MW and 12 plants in the UK, country in which we have the largest installed capacity to date.

"The strong relationship with the local communities continues. Kingsburn, as all our UK plants, will contribute to a Community Fund that will finance a number of relevant initiatives for the local community."
