The Griffin wind farm is located just south of Aberfeldy, in Perthshire. It has 68 Siemens 2.3MW turbines with a total installed capacity of 156.4MW.
My name is Katy Fraser, I'm 21 years old and I'm from a little town called Aberfeldy. I have just just started my apprenticeship with SSE to become a Wind Turbine Technician.
Wind turbines produce electricity by using the natural power of the wind to drive a generator.
More of our projects and assets
We know our investments in generation benefit from the co-operation of the local community. Thats why we establish long-term funds to support local community projects.
Completed in early 2012, Griffin is located within a boundary area similar in size to the nearby city of Perth. It was built on land which is a mixture of upland heather moorland, grassland and commercial forestry. Griffin has three distinct groups of 30, 25 and 13 turbines from west to east on three broadly parallel ridges. The Siemens 2.3MW turbines have tip heights (the highest point of the rotor sweep) of up to 124m using 49m blades. If you have any questions or would like to know more about the Griffin wind farm project, please feel free to contact Noel Cummins, the Project Liaison Manager, who will be happy to assist where possible.
