Douglas West Wind Farm Extension

3R Energy, on behalf of Douglas West Extension Ltd, has submitted an application to the Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit (ECU) which seeks permission to extend the consented Douglas West Wind Farm onto the eastern part of the Cumberhead Forest complex that lies to the north west of Douglas and south of Coalburn in rural South Lanarkshire. The site constitutes a gap between Douglas West Wind Farm, Hagshaw Hill Wind Farm, and a number of other consented wind farms on the north side of the Douglas Valley. The application seeks consent to construct and operate a wind farm with a generating capacity of up to 78MW, comprising 13 wind turbines and associated infrastructure with a ground to blade tip height of up to 200 metres. The Proposed Development also includes provision for around 20 MW of energy storage capacity.

Copies of the full Section 36 application documents are available to download below. If you have any questions on the proposal or would like any further information, please contact the project team on: info@3renergy.co.uk
