SSE Renewables has picked Vestas to supply 12 turbines for the 50MW Aberarder wind farm in the Scottish Highlands.

SSE won UK government support for the project in the UK’s fifth Contracts for Difference allocation round in September 2023, and took a final investment decision to build the scheme in May.

Construction is due to begin before the end of 2024 with completion scheduled for late 2026.

Heather Donald, onshore renewables development and construction director at SSE Renewables, said: “This marks another key milestone in the delivery of our Aberarder Wind Farm, which will be another important asset in our onshore wind portfolio and will help support Scotland and the UK on the road to producing more homegrown clean power to secure our energy future.”
