21 September, 2020 | Latest Photos

WORK is underway on installing the massive turbines at Inverclyde Windfarm.

The eight-turbine facility is being developed by renewable energy firm BayWa on moorland beside Corlic Hill near Greenock.

The turbines will be 213 feet (65 metres) high at the hub level with a blade-tip height of up to 110 metres (330 feet).

The site is about 2.4 kilometres south of Greenock town centre and the nearest turbine will be about 1.2 kilometres from houses on the southern edge of the town.

BayWa say the windfarm will produce 24 megawatts, enough to power around 44 per cent of Inverclyde households, displacing more than 18,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

The plans for the site include provision for public parking located opposite Devol Moor sub-station.

Once the site is operational, members of the public will be able to access the site and walk on the network of windfarm tracks.
