CMS advises SSE Renewables on acquisition of 49.9MW wind farm
CMS has advised leading renewable energy developer and operator, SSE Renewables (SSE), on the acquisition of the Aberarder wind farm project in Strathnairn near Inverness, Scotland.
The project, which was granted planning consent in 2017, allows for the construction of a 12-turbine onshore wind farm with an expected installed capacity of 49.9MW.
Once completed, the Aberarder wind farm will be capable of generating enough green energy to power almost 50,000 homes annually and offset over 60,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
The CMS team was led by Doug Land, with support from a team including Aisling Knapton, Jason Todd and Alicia Ingham (corporate); Claire Wallis and Ewan Thomson (real estate); June Gilles (planning); Louise Dalton, Thomas Forman and Alex Newton (energy); and Gayle Hogwood (LSU).
