Clyde Wind Farm starts electricity production

The first wind turbine at the Clyde onshore wind farm under construction in South Lanarkshire, UK, has started producing electricity for the national grid.

By Renewable Energy Focus staff

The first of the wind farm's three sections (South, 130 MW) should be completed around the time of Scottish and Southern Energy plc's (SSE) 6-month financial results announcement in November 2011; and the wind farm as a whole should be completed in 2012.

On completion, the Clyde wind farm will comprise 152 wind turbines and have a total installed capacity of 350 MW.

It is expected to produce over 1 TWh of electricity in a typical year, and its construction cost is expected to be over £500 million.
