SSE signs deal with Renewable Energy Systems Group

SSE has signed a deal with Renewable Energy Systems Group (RES) to acquire the Dunmaglass wind farm project in Scotland.

SSE has signed a deal with Renewable Energy Systems Group (RES) to acquire the Dunmaglass wind farm project in Scotland.

Off-site pre-construction works are underway for the 33 turbine Dunmaglass project, which received planning consent in December 2010.

SSE expects to begin full construction of the wind farm, located near Inverness, in late 2013. The project is anticipated to be complete in early 2016.

Once constructed, the project will have an installed capacity of 99MW.

Total investment in the wind farm is estimated to reach £200m.

"We have said that we will pursue both acquisitions and disposals in order to optimise our wind farm portfolio in the UK, and this acquisition of Dunmaglass wind farm is completely in line with that objective," said Jim Smith, Managing Director Renewables at SSE.

"Dunmaglass is a well designed project which benefits from an excellent wind resource compared to typical onshore sites. The construction timetable for the project fits well with our existing development portfolio and will enable us to optimise the use of existing resources and contracts."
