Community Windpower's 8th wind farm is now operational!

Aikengall IIa

Turbine installation started in early 2021 and despite being in the midst of a global pandemic, all 19 Siemens Gamesa SWT-DD-120 turbines have been installed on schedule. After final testing onsite the wind farm has now been handed over to CWL to operate for its operational lifetime.

CWL with the help of Scottish Civils Contractors, RJ McLeod, and Scottish turbine erection experts, Windhoist, have installed 19 turbines at the 82MW Aikengall IIa Community Wind Farm which brings the Aikengall development to over 190MW of renewable generating capacity.

Rod Wood, Managing Director at Community Windpower said: “We are immensely proud of this latest achievement, especially during unprecedented global conditions.

“Aikengall IIa will be our largest capacity project to date and this new milestone is a fantastic way to end 2021.

“We are pleased to say that this major onshore project will provide green energy for up to 70,000 homes annually.

“Our long-term commitment to Scotland and its economy is reflected in the delivery of this project as well as our three next renewable energy developments which are Sanquhar II Community Wind Farm, outside Kelloholm and Sanquhar, Faw Side Community Wind Farm between Hawick and Langholm and Scoop Hill Community Wind Farm, near Moffat – These 3 projects are all next generation strategic schemes which can deliver leading economic benefits of £413.3 million gross value added and support 5,980 job years across Scotland.”
