BayWa re renewable energy GmbH has taken possession of a 45-MW wind farm in Scotland from local energy projects developer Brockwell Energy Ltd.
The renewables unit of German diversified group BayWa AG (ETR:BYW6) announced the acquisition last week but did not provide the value of the deal.
The so-called Dalquhandy Wind Farm is located at the site of a former coal mine near Coalburn, in South Lanarkshire. The project is being sold after an extensive redesign that was intended to lift the tip heights of the turbines so that the scheme is implemented without using any subsidies, the vendor said in a separate statement. Up to 15 turbines will be powering the plant.
Once fully operational, the wind park will be able to generate enough electricity to meet the demand of around 34,000 homes.
