Site Feasibility for Wind Farm Development

Lomond Energy was commissioned by a private wind farm developer to assess the feasibility of two potential wind farm developments in Perth and Kinross.

Lomond Energy visited each site with the client, conducted a site walk over and assessed the 'in the field' local and regional constraints that were not necessarily map based.

Once back in the office, a desk based assessment including a GIS (Geographical Information System) based constraints overview was conducted to ascertain constraints including ecological, ornithological, cultural heritage, landscape, radar and infrastructure concerns along with proximity to housing and planning policy.

Noise and shadow flicker modelling was also presented using in-house wind farm and GIS software, the results of which were presented in report format with figures to the client.

The results of the feasibility assessment for each site proved useful to the client in determining whether to progress further with the development stage.

Lomond Energy can provide a unique assessment in that both as a developer and consultant we are able to identify constraints, concerns, and risks from both a developers and consultants point of view.
