West Andershaw Wind Farm

Welcome to our dedicated website for West Andershaw Wind Farm

We have created this website earlier than usual in our engagement process, to provide a way for the public to easily access information and contact us when we are unable to be present in the community.

The proposal for West Andershaw Wind Farm, an extension to the west of our existing operational site of Andershaw Wind Farm, in South Lanarkshire was introduced in May 2021, when we submitted a Scoping Request to the Scottish Government to consider the potential for an extension of up to an additional 11 turbines with a tip height of up to 250 metre and an installed capacity of over 50 Megawatt, next to our operational site.

The size of the extension project will be determined through ongoing environmental studies and consultation with communities during 2021. The first online exhibition was held between 9 August - 27 August 2021 and you can find the information provided there within the project documents folder.

This website will be updated regularly to keep you informed of how the project may be changing and how it is progressing. You can view all the Scoping documents for the proposed extension in the planning documents folder, read our FAQ's and ask us a question. There will be plenty of opportunities to view plans and provide your comments throughout the development period too.

The existing site has been fully operational since 2017 and consists of 11 turbines with an installed capacity of 36.3 Megawatt. As turbine technology has developed since then, while we are proposing installing the same number of turbines we will be able to greatly increase the installed capacity of the site. It is anticipated that a minimum of 50MW of renewable generation capacity will be installed on site. This means, if consented, we will be able to provide more homes with carbon free electricity, heat and transport in the future helping Scotland to meet our Zero Carbon target by 2045.

We are following all Scottish Government advice in relation to Covid-19 as we progress our plans. As restrictions are starting to ease we hope to hold future public exhibitions in person too. In the meantime you can find out more about our development team and Statkraft in the UK through this website.

We have set up this website to continue a conversation with the local community as the project progresses, please ask us a question or request a call back to find out more about us and the project.
