Uisenis Wind Farm

The setup of wind turbines at Uisenis

Uisenis Wind Farm will include 25 wind turbines with an installed capacity of approximately 189 MW, which is equivalent to the wind park generating 105,000 households with green energy (based on our yearly expected production in our portfolio).

The wind farm is still in the early design stages with ongoing environmental surveys.

Under status, you can read the latest updates and news about the project.

FAQ

Why is Uisenis Wind Farm a redesign of another wind farm?

Uisenis Wind Farm is a redesign of the consented Muaitheabhal Wind Farm. Turbine technology has moved on since the original consent and to ensure the option of utilising the latest onshore wind turbines on the market. In 2030 when the grid is delivered to the Island, Uisenis Power Limited is redesigning the consented scheme with a smaller number of larger turbines.

Who is Uisenis Power Limited?

Uisenis Power Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Eurowind Energy A/S. We have a long-term commitment to bring forward our onshore wind farm portfolio in Scotland

Why are some wind turbines stopped in windy weather?

Answer: The reason why some wind turbines are standing still in windy weather is that the majority of electricity production in the electricity systems for long periods mostly comes from wind turbines. In these periods, in addition to green electricity production, wind turbines also help to ensure that electricity consumption and production are always equal and in balance.

When a wind turbine is stopped in windy weather, it is probably because there is a challenge with an imbalance between electricity consumption and production. Shutting the wind turbine down contributes to creating balance in the electricity system, and is necessary for the security of supply in the regional electricity system.

Which role do wind turbines play in the climate, environment and public health?

Answer: Which role does wind turbines play in the climate, environment and public health?

Wind energy is the most mature and efficient of renewable energy technologies. In good locations, new, large wind turbines are today so competitive that green power from onshore wind turbines is today the cheapest method of reducing CO2 from electricity production. When environmental costs and CO2 quota purchases are considered, wind energy is the economically cheapest technology for electricity production.

But climate gains - a result of reduced CO2 emissions - are not the only advantages of wind turbines. The physical environment and public health are also positively affected when wind turbines replace fossil fuels in energy production and transport. In contrast to electricity and heat produced by wind turbines, the fossil fuels used in power plants and in wood-burning stoves emit polluting gases and particles.
