EDF Renewables UK has sold three onshore wind development sites in Scotland, which have consent for projects totalling 118.3MW, to UK developer Vantage RE.

The sites are the 14-turbine 67.2MW Troston project in Dumfries & Galloway; the six-turbine 25.8MW Camilty project in West Lothian; and the five-turbine 25.3MW Shelloch project in Stirlingshire.

Jon O’Sullivan, director of onshore for EDF Renewables UK, said: “This sale will allow us to focus our efforts on other projects in the pipeline including some at an earlier stage of development in the UK.”

Vian Davys, chief executive of Vantage RE, said: “These wind farm projects complement our existing portfolio of renewable energy in the UK and Ireland. As well as providing clean, renewable energy from the Scottish wind, we want to secure a genuine community benefit for those living near our sites.”
