Europe’s largest wind farm is being built near Glasgow, Scotland.
The Whitelee site covers an area of 55km2 and will eventually generate 322MW of power from 140 Siemens turbines, each 110m tall. The output is expected to power around 200,000 homes.
Before installing the turbines, £80M was spent on building 87.5km of road, since the area was so isolated. New electricity cables measuring 950km also had to be laid to take the electricity from the turbines back to the National Grid.
