A proposal for a single 800kw wind turbine at Mains of Kinmuck, located near Ellon, Aberdeenshire was submitted to Aberdeenshire Council for consideration in August 2011. The site initially received an MOD objection due the nearby RAF Buchan radar. However, after working hard with specialist consultants the MOD agreed to remove their objection and had to no concerns over the project. The application was then put to the Fomartine Area Committee in June 2013 with a recommendation of approval.Mains of Kinmuck was subsequently unanimously approved full planning permission. Muirden Energy hope to have the wind turbine operational before the end of2014.
