EON begins next phase of Caithness wind farm

German utility E.ON will this week begin to prepare the second phase of construction of its Camster wind farm in Scotland.

The Camster wind farm in Caithness will comprise 25 turbines capable of generating up to 50MW of electricity, enough, the company says, to power up to 35,000 homes.

Work began in late 2010 to prepare the site access roads and phase two will include building the turbine foundations. The project is expected to be completed by mid-2013.

Dean Guy, E.ON’s construction project manager, said: “This is a major development for us. The Camster site is an excellent place for a wind farm and this next stage of construction marks a significant step towards completing the project."
