WIND ENERGY CASE STUDIES

Bognie Farm

Caber Energy managed every aspect of this Enercon 330kW wind turbine project from conception to commissioning. After an initial feasibility study, Caber Energy obtained planning consent and a viable grid connection agreement with SSE for our client. We then negotiated project finance for our client through the Co-operative Bank and went on to coordinate the detailed technical, legal and financial due diligence requirements’ of the lender’s through to financial close. Procurement, civil works and eventual construction were also arranged by Caber Energy and the commissioning of the turbine took place in August 2012. This 130 acre farm now derives almost all of its income from renewable energy and the turbine is predicted to achieve an annual output of 700,000kWh.

Wester Cambushinnie Farm

This was the first Enercon E33 to be commissioned in Scotland and has now been operational for nearly 3 years. Caber Energy provided a turn-key service on this project – managing the entire process from an initial planning application all the way through to commissioning. This was Caber Energy’s first medium sized wind project and its successful, on time and on budget commissioning in March 2012 turned out to be a milestone for the company. Our experience and proven track record has won us a number of medium sized wind turbine projects and we look forward to installing these in the years ahead.

Cluny

As with Bognie, this site required significant negotiation with Inverness airport and the MOD – an area where Caber Energy has extensive experience. Caber Energy again provided a turn-key service and the turbine was successfully commissioned in August 2014 and is expected to produce 600,000 kWh of renewable energy per annum providing a very good diversified income for the Estate and offsetting over 300,000 kg of CO2 per annum.

Low Whiteside

Planning consent and a grid connection agreement have been secured for this project and an E33 is on order. Civil works have been completed and a 3 km grid connection has been laid in collaboration with a neighbouring wind turbine installation. The foundations were completed in October 2014 and installation is scheduled for November 2014 with commissioning expected in December 2014.
