EnergieKontor announced its sale of the Longhill Burn Wind Farm and Sorbie Wind Farm to Capital Dynamics. The Longhill Burn Wind Farm will consist of eight Siemens Gamesa turbines with a total capacity of 50 MW. The project, which is located in West Lothian, Scotland, is expected to be one of the largest subsidy-free onshore wind farms in the United Kingdom once completed. The Sorbie Wind Farm is a shovel-ready, subsidy-free project located in North Ayrshire, Scotland, and, once operational, is estimated to reduce greenhouse emissions by over 0.7 million metric tons during its lifetime.
