Vattenfall submits plans for £190m wind farm


Swedish energy firm Vattenfall has submitted plans for a £190m 50-turbine wind farm in the south west of Scotland to the Scottish government.

The company said the 170MW South Kyle Wind Farm could power more than 90,000 households in the UK.

The farm would be based near Patna, Carsphairn, Dalmellington and New Cumnock.

Vattenfall said the project would bring “lasting economic benefit to the local community”, if approved.

Vattenfall’s UK Onshore Wind Development Director, Piers Guy, said: “Developments like this not only make a substantial contribution to the environment, they also have a significant positive impact on both the local and national economy.
