Parkmead Group, of Aberdeen and a “major European renewable energy developer” are in talks over a proposed 100 megawatt (MW) wind farm near Banchory.
Discussions are “progressing” and Parkmead, led by multimillionaire entrepreneur Tom Cross, hopes they will lead to a joint venture.
A 100MW wind farm could power an estimated 110,000 homes.
Where would the wind farm be built?
The land at the heart of the proposals is at Pitreadie on Royal Deeside.
Mr Cross’s wife, Linda, and a business partner sold Pitreadie Farm to Parkmead a few years ago in a deal worth £4.9 million.
The company also took on £3.6m-worth of bank debt.
At the time, Mr Cross said Pitreadie was well-suited to the installation of wind turbines, solar panels and biomass production facilities. https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/…/energy-firm…/
