9 Turbines at 3MW capactiy each
Total Generating Capacity = 27MW
Height to blade tip = 125m
Rotor diameter = 90m
Hub Height = 80m
Muirhall Energy acquired the 9 turbine Greengairs site from Infinis in 2017
In January 2007 Infinis applied to North Lanarkshire Council for planning permission to construct and operate a wind farm at Greengairs approximately 5km north-east of Airdrie, North Lanarkshire.
North Lanarkshire Council has resolved to grant planning permission subject to conditions and completion of a planning legal agreement.
The Greengairs wind farm proposal comprises nine turbines with a ground to blade tip height of 125m. The maximum generating capacity of the proposal is 27MW. Other items that would form part of the wind farm would be a meteorological mast, crane hardstanding beside each wind turbine, electrical substation and control building and access tracks.
It is estimated that the Greengairs wind farm could generate the equivalent of the annual average electricity use of around 14,000 UK households, based on an average capacity factor of 26.9%*.
The full application is available for viewing online at the North Lanarkshire Council website, application reference 07/00172/FUL. A Non-Technical Summary of the Environmental Statement can be downloaded from the link above.
