High Constellation Windfarm

A project of BayWa r.e. UK Limited

High Constellation Windfarm Ltd (HCWL), is a wholly owned subsidiary of BayWa r.e UK. Following the design of the windfarm by Blue Energy, HCWL is now taking the project forward through construction to operation.

Site location

About the project 

High Constellation Wind Farm is located immediately adjacent to the operational Cour Wind Farm, within the administrative boundary of Argyll and Bute Council. The site is located primarily in commercial coniferous forestry at an altitude of approximately 230m.

The consented site entrance will be from the A83, approximately 4km north of Clachan. This is the same site entrance used for the construction of Cour Wind Farm, and which continues to be used for ongoing operations and maintenance work at Cour. All wind turbine components will be delivered via this route, which has been proven capable of accommodating delivery vehicles from the construction of Cour Wind Farm.

High Constellation turbines are partially located within commercial forestry and consent has been granted to undertake advanced felling works, approved as part of the project's felling plan and Habitat Management Plans submitted with the Section 36 application documents. The felling activities commenced in January 2022 and are due to be completed by the end of March 2023. HCWL is in the process of discharging conditions attached to the consent prior to the commencement of development later in 2023.

Consultaton on tip height increase

Following consultation with the project stakeholders High Constellation Windfarm Ltd. can confirm that we are no longer pursuing an increase in the turbine height. The project will therefore proceed on its currently consented layout of 10 turbines of 149.9m to tip.
