Orkney's Community Wind Farm Project - Faray

This uninhabited island, lying to the north and west of Eday and south-southeast of Westray, was bought by the Council in January 2019 for its strategic development potential.

The Proposed Development would consist of six wind turbines with a blade tip height of 149.9m, providing a total generation capacity in the order of 28MW.

In addition to the turbines, the site could include turbine foundations, crane hard-standings, a new jetty/landing site for bringing turbine components and construction materials onto the island, internal access tracks, on-site access tracks between turbines, underground cabling between the turbines, on-site substation and maintenance building with welfare facility, a temporary construction compound and potential on site borrow pit(s) dependent on the suitability of site-won materials to provide aggregate for the construction of the development.
