EDF and development associate Force 9 are exploring a probable 315MW onshore mega-wind farm close to Elgin in northeast Scotland.

The allies will start exhibitions later this month for the Clash Gour project, for which scoping will soon begin before an eventual Section 36 application.

The project would be sited to the southwest, north and east of Statkraft’s operational 67MW Berry Burn, which was initially developed by Force 9.

Under preliminary parameters, Clash Cour would have 63 turbines of 5MW each. Tip heights would differ from 135 metres to 175 metres.

As presently drawn up the project would be one of Scotland’s biggest single-phase wind farms.
