This month saw the successful commissioning of four E-48 sites and one 225kW site. Single E-48 turbines were made operational at North Lothian, Hill of Culbirnie, Backhill of Culbirnie and Little Whiterashes, each producing 800kW of operational power. A single 225kW turbine was also installed at our Auchenbadie site. Combined, December saw Muirden Energy switch on 3,425kW of operational power.
Two of the sites were more challenging than usual for the construction teams. At North Lothian the team conducted extensive dewatering of the site before foundations could be laid. Our two projects at Hill of Culbinie and Backhill of Culbirnie saw 5km of overhead lines installed to enable connection to the grid.
