A FUND run by InfraRed Capital Partners has paid £78m for a wind farm that
is soon to be built in East Ayrshire.
Afton Wind Farm, which was developed by E.ON Climate & Renewables, will be
a 25 turbine, 50MW onshore wind farm located on land adjacent to Afton
Reservoir near New Cumnock.
It has been sold by E.ON with full planning consent and construction is
expected to begin before the end of this year.
The turbines will be supplied and maintained by Spanish company Gamesa
while Livingston business Farrans Construction is the electrical contractor
and Neas Energy is handling the power purchase agreement.
