Drumduff Wind Farm – Successful Transition from Coal to Clean Renewable Energy

The completed Drumduff Wind Farm, a joint venture between GreenPower and Thrive Renewables (Thrive), is shown in the above film explaining the successful transition from a former open cast coal mine to producing clean renewable energy and features some beautiful drone footage.

Located to the north of Blackridge in West Lothian, Scotland, construction of the wind farm commenced at the end of January 2017 and has been operational since the end of June 2017. The majority of the land on the site will now be allowed to return to its native ecology and also incorporates an area of woodland which will be managed alongside the wind farm development.

The 6MW project will generate enough renewable electricity to meet the annual demand of 5,458 UK homes, building on GreenPower’s belief that the world should be powered by sustainable renewable energy and Thrive’s goal to allow individuals to contribute to cleaning up the UK’s energy system.  The clean energy transition is particularly evident at this site.

GreenPower, one of the leading independent renewable energy developers in the UK, is proud to be joint owners on this project with Thrive who work with developers and communities to develop and build new sources of renewable energy to contribute to a cleaner smarter energy system fit for the future.
