BUSINESSES in Ayrshire have the opportunity to ‘meet the buyer’ behind South Kyle Wind Farm near Dalmellington. 

In June 2017 the Scottish Government gave planning permission for the 50 turbine wind farm which will be constructed by Vattenfall, the Swedish energy group.

And now local businesses are invited to a supply chain event in Kilmarnock ahead of scheduled construction starting in 2019.

Guy Mortimer, Vattenfall’s UK head of onshore wind development, said: “We want local businesses to prosper and local jobs to be secured as a result of our investment. Vattenfall believes that onshore wind has a vital role to play.”

The event is on June 20 at the Park Hotel, Kilmarnock, from 3pm to 7pm.
