9.9.2005: Meldung: SSE to extend wind farm at Tangy

Scottish and Southern Energy plc ("SSE") has received consent from Argyll & Bute Council to extend its wind farm at Tangy in Argyll. The wind farm currently has an installed capacity of 13MW. Consent has been granted for the development of an additional 6MW, taking the total capacity to 19MW.

Including the existing wind farm at Tangy, SSE has 42MW of operating capacity at three wind farms in Scotland. It is on course to complete the development of the Hadyard Hill wind farm in Ayrshire (120MW) and the new plant at Fasnakyle hydro-electric power station (7MW) before the end of the current financial year. It has also recently received consent to develop a new large-scale hydro-electric power station at Glendoe which will have a capacity of around 100MW.

Ian Marchant, Chief Executive of SSE, said: "I am pleased that we have been able to secure consent to extend our wind farm at Tangy and that our plans to invest in renewable energy are continuing to progress. As with our existing projects, our aim will be to complete the construction phase in as smooth and professional a manner as possible."
