The MV Randzel arrived in Inverness earlier this week with the first of four shipments of machinery for the Hill of Glaschyle Wind Farm. The ship which brought in machinery and blades was built in 2006, has a GT of 3,173 and is 99m in length. Following discharge the ship set sail for Brake in Germany. The next vessel, the Abis Belfast is due in the first half of next week, arriving from Aviero with machinery and tower sections.
The Hill of Glaschyle Wind Farm is situated near to Forres and comprises 12 turbines. It is scheduled for energisation in early 2017.
Commenting, Port Chief Executive said, “We are delighted to welcome the Randzel to Inverness and support this renewables project. The Hill of Glaschyle Wind Farm follows on very quickly from another Enercon project the Edintore Wind Farm. “
