Quick overview

Completed in early 2012, Griffin is located to the south of Aberfeldy in Perthshire. It was built on land which is a mixture of upland heather moorland, grassland and commercial forestry.

Griffin has three distinct groups of 30, 25 and 13 Siemens 2.3MW turbines from west to east on three broadly parallel ridges. The tip heights (the highest point of the rotor sweep) are up to 124m using 45m and 49m blades.

The neighbouring 14 turbine Calliachar wind farm is located to the west of Griffin.

Community

We recognise that our investments in new electricity generation benefit from the co-operation of the local community in a variety of ways, particularly during the construction phase. In recognition of this, our policy is to establish long-term funds to support community projects in areas where we are developing generation projects.
