CONSTRUCTION work is underway on a project to install the UK’s tallest onshore wind turbines after Banks Renewables secured new funding agreements with Greencoat UK Wind. 200m-tall turbines will be erected as part of the 15-turbine extension to the Kype Muir wind farm in South Lanarkshire, around five kilometres south of Strathaven. The extension will complement the 26-turbine wind farm, which has been operational since 2019. Together they will have a combined installed capacity of 155MW, which is enough to meet the annual electricity needs of around 112,000 homes.
