Windfarm / Aikengall II
Construction works for the Aikengall II Community Wind Farm is now finished. The 19 turbines were fully commissioned and energised on the 6th November 2017. It has been a long time in coming due to contractors damaging the 156 ton transformer on its journey up to Crystal Rig substation last September (2016). This resulted in the transformer having to be returned to South Korea for repairs. It finally returned in late July this year to Torness Power Station harbour before being safely moved to the substation a few days later.
