Building Rigmuir Windfarm (video updates)

Nine blades, six tower sections, three hubs and nacelles, and a few other components are going into building Rigmuir Windfarm, just outside East Kilbride in Scotland.

We’re capturing some of the key moments in moving all that equipment to the site and assembling it into three 4.5 MW wind turbines.

Check back here regularly for further updates.

The first delivery was among the trickiest. Manoeuvring a 68m turbine blade through East Kilbride town centre required considerable planning and some specialist hauliers.

The view from 149.9 metres. That’s the height of each of the three turbines. With a capacity of 4.5 MW per turbine, Rigmuir Windfarm will generate around 45 GWh of low-cost, low-carbon electricity every year.

Another busy night. We’ve now completed 6 successful turbine blade deliveries, using the blade lifter. But this never gets old.

That’s all the constituent parts delivered. Next stage: assembly.
