The first phase of Orkney’s new fully funded community wind turbine scheme will go live on the islands this month, with farmers and landowners at 20 properties set to benefit from deeply discounted electricity for at least two decades.

Hamsin Wind (Hamsin) is aiming to install over 60 single onshore wind turbines at residential and commercial sites across Orkney by the end of 2015 and is actively seeking applications from interested parties. Hosts do not have to pay any money towards the turbine, its installation or future maintenance. Planning and capital costs are entirely covered by Hamsin.

Scottish Equity Partners (SEP) has completed its first clean energy infrastructure investment from the Environmental Capital Fund. SEP will invest up to £9 million in Hamsin Wind (Hamsin) to fund the roll-out of approximately 200 small, community based, single onshore wind turbines in high wind speed locations across the Highlands and Islands.

Working with development partners, Mistral Energy and ABG, Hamsin has engaged Kingspan Wind as the turbine supply partner, with Hadrian Electrical Engineering the installation and long-term operations and maintenance partner. Many of the Kingspan turbines are manufactured in Scotland and local contractors will be utilised on Hamsin turbine installations.
