Scottish Borders, Scotland [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] The Board of Novera has announced that the Scottish Borders Council has approved the company’s planned 11-turbine Glenkerie Wind Farm. The project, which will be located southeast of Biggar, Scottish Borders will have an intalled capacity of between 22-27 megawatts (MW), depending on turbine selection.
Glenkerie is Novera’s second wind farm to get approval this year, taking the capacity of the company’s wind portfolio in production or approved to more than 100 MW. Novera submitted the planning application to Scottish Borders Council in December 2007. Novera has accepted an offer from ScottishPower to provide a connection to the grid from Glenkerie. The company expects to start construction in 2009 and production in 2010.
“The approval of Glenkerie today highlights good progress of our wind portfolio and re-affirms our approach to development,” said Rory Quinlan, CFO of Novera.
