Windy Standard I Repower

Overview

Brockloch Rig I is the earliest phase of the Brockloch Rig Wind Farm, and has been operating for over 25 years.

We are exploring opportunities to replace the existing Brockloch Rig I turbines with new, larger, modern turbines that utilise the latest technology.

Our repowering proposals would:

  • Reduce the number of turbines
  • Increase the generating capacity
  • Share existing infrastructure – including tracks and grid connection
Status Development
Number of turbines 36
Location 8 km North East of Carsphairn and 10 km south of New Cumnock, Scotland, DG7 3UF
Type of turbines 600 kW
Installed capacity 21.6

Community consultation

We have been continuing to speak to the local community about our proposals to repower Windy Standard Wind Farm.

We held three public events in November 2021 to engage local residents and key stakeholders. These were very well attended and we welcomed the opportunity to discuss the plans in further detail.

We appreciate that not everyone will have be able to attend. However, the materials are available to download below and we are encouraging people to:

  • Get in touch to set up a discussion. Text/call 07435 763 900. The team can be on hand to discuss the plans, and this includes after 5pm.
  • Submit questions via communities@fredolsen.co.uk.
  • Request additional information on memory stick by emailing communities@fredolsen.co.uk or text/calling 07435 763 900.

We will keep the community informed as our proposals progress.

Community

To date, Brockloch Rig I has provided over £500,000 to communities surrounding the wind farm through their community benefit funds. If consented, the repower of Brockloch Rig I will provide over £7.5m throughout the lifespan of the project.

We believe that the repower of Brockloch Rig I can continue to support the local economy and help to meet local aspirations.

We want to work closely with the communities surrounding Brockloch Rig I to ensure that the community benefit can address identified local challenges such as housing stock and energy consumption, in addition to recreation, tourism and ecology.

We want to hear your views on how the wind farm can continue to support your community and meet local aspirations. Get in touch communities@fredolsen.co.uk.
