Following on from the success of the Rothes II installation in Scotland earlier this year we are pleased to announce that Global Wind Service (GWS) has been awarded the installation contract for the Mid Hill II wind farm project (also in Scotland). The project will comprise initially of 25 Siemens 2.3 MW turbines. A further 8 turbines will be added immediately after the initial installation phase has been completed.
Once again, GWS will partner with BMS to provide a complete Craning and Installation package on what is considered to be a significant project in the UK market. The project is due to start at the beginning of September and should run up until Christmas with the final 8 turbines to be installed in early 2014.
Mid Hill II wind farm is situated 16 km West of Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire. When completed the site will have an installed capacity of 76 MW which could power up to 41,000 homes.
