Construction of the Drumduff Wind Farm is now well underway. The joint venture between GreenPower International Ltd and Thrive Renewables is located near Blackridge in West Lothian and consists of three wind turbines, access tracks, a substation and a temporary site compound.
Construction of the wind farm started at the end of January 2017 and already work is progressing fast even though the weather has been challenging at times with gales, heavy rain and snow. The access tracks are being laid and will be capped with stone in the coming weeks.
At turbine 3 the reinforcement steel cage is in place ready for the concrete pour.
The control building/substation is taking shape with the internal and external block works well underway.
The turbines are due to be delivered in May and the wind farm will be connected to the electricity grid by a new 5km long underground cable which will connect into an existing Scottish Power substation near Avonbridge. There is also further information on the Drumduff project page.
