local case study

United Kingdom

Inverclyde

Located in Inverclyde, south of Greenock and west of Port Glasgow, BayWa r.e. has reached a significant milestone for the UK renewable energy sector with its completion.
Having started construction in May 2019 Inverclyde Windfarm exported its first energy to the UK electricity market in November 2020. 

Inverclyde windfarm also marks BayWa r.e.’s first subsidy-free corporate PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) for a windfarm in the UK. Tesco Stores Ltd signed a 15-year PPA as the offtaker – contributing to the retailer’s commitment to use 100 percent renewable electricity across the Tesco Group by 2030.

15-year Corporate PPA
24 MW of installed capacity
18,000 t/y of CO2 emissions reduced

Project Location

The windfarm is now part of the JamesJones Investment portfolio and BayWa r.e. continues to manage the site as technical asset manager. The clean energy produced will displace more than 18,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.  

We understand the value of local expertise and wherever possible we source locally. This project was no exception, and we were able to employ the services of a local family-run company I&H Brown as the main contractor.

Several other smaller contracting jobs were awarded to local companies and the turbine manufacturer, Enercon, also has an operational office in nearby Port Glasgow, demonstrating our ‘keep it local’ goals.
