The two developers
hope to build the 14-turbine project at Leadhills, says environmental
consultancy Atmos Consulting, which handled the application on their behalf.
site is within the 50km buffer zone of the Eskdalemuir seismic monitoring station,
run by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) and used to detect events such as nuclear
tests around the world.
development is heavily restricted inside the buffer zone, and the MoD has
objected to new projects since 2009.
Atmos says the
local authority will now consult over the application, with a decision expected
late this year.
Falck and RDC
have co-developed seven wind farms in the UK.
