Airport operator Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd has now begun the tender process for the development and implementation of a new wind farm-friendly system for Inverness Airport.
The new system was approved in principle by the HIAL board earlier this year. HIAL expects the contract will be awarded by the end of September and estimates operational functionality between 18 and 24 months from the point of order.
Scottish Government Transport Minister Graeme Dey said: “The Scottish Government is pleased that HIAL is progressing to tender for a windfarm tolerant system for Inverness airport. This is an excellent step forward to addressing the barriers to deploying renewable projects and demonstrates the commitment of both the renewable and aviation industries in achieving net zero.”
HIAL will keep in contact with wind farm developers to update them on the tender process. https://www.strathspey-herald.co.uk/news/inverness-airport-working-to-ensure-future-wind-farm-project-241965/
