Parkmead owns and operates two large areas of land in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, which have significant and varied renewable energy potential. These assets were acquired in September 2019 through the acquisition of Pitreadie, providing Parkmead with its first renewable energy opportunities.

 

Studies are being conducted across these sites for the potential development of a large wind farm.

 

One of the large areas of land acquired spans 1,238 acres and is located some 15 miles west of Aberdeen. Excellent average wind speeds exist on the site of between 7-10 m/s. This site lies adjacent to the Mid Hill Wind Farm (pictured) which contains 33 Siemens wind turbines with a generating capacity of around 75MW. Woodland planting has already been undertaken on part of this large site, which has the potential for a commercial biomass supply operation. Parkmead will be conducting a detailed analysis for optimising the land use of the various sites within the Pitreadie portfolio throughout 2020.
