Project overview

In September 2022 Scottish Ministers approved the application by Fred. Olsen Renewables to develop Fetteresso Wind Farm in Aberdeenshire. The plans will form an extension to Mid Hill Wind Farm and consist of ten turbines. The project will enable the delivery of environmental, social and economic benefits, including a substantial community benefit fund. 

Mid Hill Wind Farm is located in Fetteresso Forest, southwest of Aberdeen. The development currently consists of 33 turbines generating 75.9MW of power. The newly consented, Fetteresso Wind Farm, will consist of up to ten turbines ranging from 149m to 200m to tip. Combined the two projects will generate over 100MW.

We will work closely with the local community and decision makers to deliver this project.

Community Fund

Community benefit funds form part of our ongoing commitments to communities in the vicinity of our developments.   If Fetteresso Wind Farm is successful in the planning process a community benefit fund for Fetteresso Wind Farm, providing the Scottish Governments recommended £5,000 per MW of installed capacity will be established.  This means, should the wind farm become operational, the fund could provide up to £210,000 a year in benefits for communities in Aberdeenshire.

Community ownership

There is a community ownership opportunity associated with the proposed Fetteresso Wind Farm. Initial information has been disseminated and further details will be provided as the development progresses.
