Gordonbush Extension wind farm generates first power

The first four turbines of the Gordonbush Extension started turning this week, with SSE Renewables predicting that that farm will generate 38MW of wind-powered electricity.

Situated 10km north east of Brora in Sutherland in the Scottish Highlands, the development is the first to be built by SSE Renewables on a merchant basis, which means no subsidies or CfD support were used to finance the project.

Gordonbush Extension is scheduled to be fully operational in mid-2021. The project is situated beside SSE Renewables’ 71.75MW operational Gordonbush Wind Farm, which was first commissioned in 2012.
