SSE pulls 117MW of UK wind plans

The wind farm will join these turbines in SSE's wind fleet

The two wind projects will not now be joining these turbines in SSE's fleet

UK utility SSE has withdrawn planning applications for 117MW of onshore wind in Scotland, saying a review had found continued investment not to be viable.

The company will no longer pursue plans for the 81MW Dalnessie wind farm in Sutherland and a 36MW extension to the Fairburn plant in Glen Orrin.

Colin Nicol, SSE director of onshore renewables, said: “SSE continues to have a good pipeline of very strong onshore renewable developments across Scotland.

“Each project is dealt with on a case-by-case basis and the decision to end Dalnessie and Fairburn Extension means that we can redirect resource onto the best projects in our portfolio.”
