Middle Muir was granted planning permission by the Scottish Government Energy Consents and Deployment Unit, as was, in September 2014. Enabling works started in August 2016 and the main construction work for the wind farm began in April 2017. Construction work was completed in December 2018 and the wind farm is now fully operational.
Throughout the construction and site investigation phases we were fully committed to maximising local resources and expertise and wherever possible, appointed local companies to undertake the work.
