November 12 (Renewables Now) - Canada’s Boralex Inc (TSE:BLX) and UK renewables developer Infinergy have plans to install seven turbines to the east of the already consented Limekiln wind farm in Caithness, northern Scotland.
The existing wind farm project, of 21 turbines with a combined capacity of about 90 MW, is planned to be fully operational by end-2022. Full construction is to begin in 2021. The extension proposal, announced by the project partners on Monday, is not expected to delay Limekiln.
The Limekiln Wind Farm Extension project will add roughly 20 MW of capacity. The plans will be presented to the local community at two meetings next week -- on November 20 and November 21 -- in Reay Village Hall. A detailed project proposal will be submitted to the Scottish Government in the spring of 2020.
Boralex and Infinergy announced a 50/50 joint venture (JV) in October 2017, targeting 325 MW of joint onshore wind projects, mainly located in Scotland.
