Scottish Wind Farm Breezes to Completion

March 1, 2004 [] ScottishPower has completed the 35-turbine Cruach Mhor Wind Farm in Argyll, Scotland, which will bring 30 MW of green energy to the region. According to ScottishPower, that is enough to power over 17,000 homes. Speaking at the Scottish Renewables Forum, Deputy Enterprise Minister Lewis MacDonald expressed his delight that the turbines were manufactured in Kintyre, Scotland, at the Vestas plant. The 8-month construction project has brought an estimated ý15 million (US$28 million) to the Argyll economy including the 850 kW turbines being manufactured by Campbeltown’s Vestas Celtic, which employs 200 people. The project will now undergo a commissioning period before being officially opened in the early summer.
