Fred. Olsen Renewables operates Crystal Rig Wind Farm. The project is located approximately 11km south of Dunbar in East Lothian and 16.5km north-west of Duns, within the Scottish Borders.

Crystal Rig Wind Farm first commenced operation in 2003 and we were granted consent for an 11-turbine extension in 2021. This involves:
- Four turbines at up to 149.9 m tip height.
- Three turbines at up to 174.5 m tip height.
- Four turbines at up to 200 m tip height.
When Crystal Rig Wind Farm began operating it consisted of 25 turbines. A further 60 turbines were added in 2010 and a further six in 2015.
The recently consented extension, Crystal Rig IV, will form a natural expansion of the existing site and will involve the construction of 11 turbines up to 200m to tip. This will allow the wind farm, combined, to generate 262.5MW of electricity – the equivalent to powering more than 200,000 homes annually.
