Newton of Fortrie

Newton of Fortrie is a cluster of three Enercon E-70s (2.3MW) located near Auchterless, Aberdeenshire. The site became operational in March 2013 and was later sold to Resonance Asset Management in June 2014.

Where possible, Muirden Energy endeavours to support the local economy at our turbine sites by using locally sourced contractors. Davidson Plant Hire was appointed the civils contractor and Prelec Ltd was the electricals contractor. Lovie Ltd provided the concrete for the crane hardstanding.
