Fife Council has once again been asked to comment on a proposed windfarm which would sit just 1.5k from the Methil shore if approved. The proposal, submitted by Forthwind, a subsiduary of 2-B Energy, is for two wind turbines with an installed capacity of 9MW each. They would sit at a height of just over 198m, making them even taller than the existing Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) turbine, now owned and managed by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult. The proposal also includes an on-shore plant related to electricity generation from the turbines, to be located at the Fife Energy Park.
