The Benbrack onshore wind farm project, acquired by Red Rock Power in February 2021, is a late-stage development located in Dumfries & Galloway, Southwest Scotland.
The wind farm site sits just south of the East Ayrshire border, approximately 6 km north of Carsphairn and east of the A713. *The application boundary does not represent the actual footprint of the wind farm, rather the area of land to which the planning permission and related scoping studies apply to. The actual size of the wind farm will be considerably smaller.
The wind farm was first proposed in 2012 and secured planning consent in 2017 which has since been varied to further optimise the project. It will consist of 15 turbines which have a maximum tip height of 149m and a total generation capacity of 67MW, however there is scope within the consents to potentially increase this.
Initial site works are expected to commence in August 2022. Please see more information regarding our construction plans and timeline, as well as potential disruptions and feedback process, here.
