Trig, the London-listed renewables investor, has snapped up a wind farm project in the west of Scotland, stirring up job hopes at an embattled local turbine maker. The firm has acquired Blary Hill Energy in a deal which includes the rights to construct a 35-megawatt wind farm near Glenbarr, on the Kintyre peninsula. It is understood that developer RES is engaging with the local CS Wind factory to see if it can supply the project. The wind tower manufacturer recently announced up to 73 jobs were at risk due to “gaps” in its order book. Construction of the 14-turbine project is due to start in the coming months, with the project expected to commence operations in 2022. RES will also provide asset management services.
