设计, 环境影响评价, stakeholder consultation and consenting support for Glenmuckloch风电场 - a proposal for eight 3.2 MW wind turbines located on land adjacent to the Glenmuckloch opencast coal mine, 邓弗里斯盖洛韦, 苏格兰, UK.
Glenmuckloch风电场 is proposed as part of an innovative restoration project, which will include the wind turbines working alongside a proposed pumped storage hydro-electric scheme. These complimentary projects aim to secure the long term future of the site, providing ongoing jobs and economic investment.
The project would produce renewable energy to power around 16,000个家庭, contributing to national climate change and energy policy targets to reduce greenhouse 气体 (GHG) emissions.
In addition to the direct and indirect investment associated with the construction and operation of the proposed wind farm, a community benefit fund will be set up to provide over £3millon for the local community over the lifetime of the project.
Ramboll was appointed to work with 2020 Renewables and Buccleuch Estates to coordinate the design of the layout, 接入和支持基础设施. 该项目包括8个133.5 m turbines, 11 km of access track, a meteorological mast and substation/control building. We developed a design that responds to the challenging site topography, while maximising the wind yields and respecting the landscape context.
Ramboll was responsible for the EIA process and coordinated stakeholder consultation to agree the scope of the EIA. We coordinated technical inputs to the wind farm design on ground conditions (peat) and 噪音. The EIA included assessments of landscape and visual, 水文, 生态, 鸟类学, 文化遗产, 噪音及运输影响.
Our services included the preparation and submission of an environmental statement, 规划 statement and pre-application consultation report in support of the 规划 application. Following receipt of consultation responses, we coordinated responses and further information. The wind farm received consent from 邓弗里斯盖洛韦 Council in June 2016 following a 12-month determination period.
