Vestas will supply and install 12 of its V117 4.2 MW wind turbines in 4.3 MW operating mode at SSE Renewables Aberarder project site near InvernessSSE has announced Vestas as the turbine supplier for its 12-turbine, 50 MW Aberarder Wind Farm in the Scottish Highlands. Vestas will supply and install 12 of its V117-4.2 MW wind turbines in 4.3 MW operating mode at the Aberarder site in Strathnairn near Inverness.

The Aberarder project secured a 15-year contract for low-carbon power generation in the UK's fifth Contract for Difference (CfD) Allocation round in September 2023. SSE made a final investment decision on Aberarder Wind Farm in May 2023, committing around £100 million. Construction is due to begin before the end of 2024, with completion scheduled for late 2026.

Aberarder Wind Farm will be located on a natural plateau at an average of 700 metres above sea level, directly adjacent to the operational 94 MW Dunmaglass Wind Farm, which is jointly owned by SSE Renewables and Greencoat UK Wind.
