Viking Energy Archive
This Archive contains around 600 detailed documents and illustrations relating to the planning of Viking Wind Farm. This large body of material is fully searchable using the website's Google Custom Search box.
A new section was added on 16th November 2018 under the heading Section 36 variation application to increase turbine tip height. It displays the documentation submitted to the Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit in support of a minor increase in the permitted size of the wind turbines.
The other main sections of the Archive contain the Environmental Impact Assessment 2009, which consists of the five volumes of documents prepared for Viking Energy's initial application for planning consent, which was to build 150 turbines.
The following year, in response to consultation, Viking Energy removed 23 turbines, mainly from areas of deep peat or sensitive bird breeding sites. This required submission of a modified Environmental Statement to build 127 turbines. It makes up the Addendum 2010 section.
Also featured are some archive publications from the period prior to Viking Energy gaining consent in April 2012 for a 103-turbine wind farm.
