The project is expected to offer 350MW of new renewable electricity generating capacity, providing power for approximately 200,000 homes.

On completion, it is expected to overtake the Whitelee wind farm on Eaglesham Moor south of Glasgow. Skykon Tower Solutions will manufacture the 80m high towers from its Campbeltown facility on behalf of the turbine supplier Siemens.

Work is expected to begin on February 1 next year with the first delivery projected for late March 2010. It is also expected that the supply deal will run to the middle of 2011.

Jesper Ohlenschlæger, CEO of Skykon, said: “The Clyde project is a very important business win for our Campeltown manufacturing facility. Scotland has become the most positive and the most interesting renewable wind power market in Europe. This growing demand has allowed us to begin to meet our commercial objectives of building a leading tower supplier, delivering to the large wind turbine generators.

“The Clyde Wind Farm project represents a landmark phase in Scotland’s renewable energy strategy and we now look forward to seeing yet another step forward in the country’s sustainable economic development.”
