Summary

ScottishPower Renewables (SPR) is planning to construct a wind farm in the UK.

The project involves the construction of a 34.5MW wind farm called "Halsary Wind Farm".

It will include the construction of a substation, access roads and other related infrastructure facilities, the installation of 15 turbines with a capacity of 2.3MW each, generators, transformers, safety and security systems, and the laying of transmission lines.

In May 2008, feasibility study was undertaken in order to identify key significant issues at an early stage and allow these to be considered in the environmental impact assistance (EIA) process.

In 2009, SPR submitted an application to the Highland Council to build and operate an 18 turbine wind farm with a generating capacity of up to 41.4MW.

In December 2012, SPR resubmitted the revised plans by reducing three turbines.

On September 17, 2013, the project secured planning approval.

GTech Surveys Ltd has been appointed as lead consultant.

On May 13, 2015, SPR submitted the planning application to allow an increase in the maximum turbine height from 100m to 112m to the Highland Council and secured approval on August 12, 2015.

Pre-construction TV and radio reception impact assessments are underway.
