September 22 (Renewables Now) - Wind farm developer and operator Fred. Olsen Renewables, a unit of Norwegian group Bonheur ASA (OSL:BONHR), on Wednesday said it has been granted approval by the Scottish government to develop the 10-turbine Fetteresso wind farm in Aberdeenshire.
The project, with a capacity of between 37 MW and 42 MW, represents an extension to the Mid Hill wind farm, which is located in Fetteresso Forest, southwest of Aberdeen. Mid Hill has 33 turbines with an installed capacity of 75.9 MW. The 10-turbine extension will bring the capacity of the combined wind park to over 100 MW.
Renewable energy consultancy Natural Power prepared and submitted the application for the Fetteresso wind farm on behalf of Fred. Olsen Renewables. Locogen managed the application through the public inquiry process.
Fred. Olsen Renewables is currently operating 12 wind farms in Scotland, Norway and Sweden.
