Eneco switches on Lochluichart

Dutch group Eneco has commissioned its largest wind farm, the 69MW Lochluichart in the Scottish Highlands.

The £70m ($117m) project just outside Garve in Ross-shire, featuring 23 3MW Siemens turbines, has taken two and a half years to complete.

Eneco now has 210MW of onshore wind and solar operational or under construction.

Eneco UK's portfolio includes the 42MW Tullo wind farm in Aberdeenshire, Scotland; the 60MW Moy and 22.5MW Burn of Whilk wind farms, both in the Scottish Highlands; and its first solar project, the 10MW Sevor near Swindon, southwest England.

It is also a 50/50 development partner with EDF in the planned 970MW Navitus Bay offshore wind farm off the Isle of Wight, southern England.
