SSE has completed work to connect Dunmaglass Windfarm in Scotland to the National Grid and the project will be able to supply power from next week.

Situated around 25km south of Inverness, the turbines stand 700m above sea level. With an installed capacity of 94.05MW, it features 26 fully erected and six part-completed turbines. After final commissioning work is complete, the facility can proceed to export power.

"The facility is expected to be completely operational in early 2017."

SSE's director of generation development Paul Cooley said: “It is fantastic news that we have managed to energise Dunmaglass Windfarm this week and that’s down to a big push from all involved on the site and the professionalism of the project team.

"We are very pleased to be in this position with the site now capable of providing electricity.”

Delivery of turbines to Dunmaglass Windfarm commenced in May this year. It is expected to be completely operational in early 2017.
