Last Glen Kyllachy Machinery Leaves Port

15th July 2021

The Port of Inverness said farewell to the Glen Kyllachy Wind Farm with the last tower section leaving the port for site earlier today.  The Port was used to ship the goods from overseas starting in November last year, ahead of schedule, to offset some of the issues envisioned by Brexit.  The parts were stored over the winter and started being moved to site at the end of March.

Commenting, Port Chief Executive Sinclair Browne said, “We have been delighted to assist with this project which further assists in the fight against climate change.  I am delighted to report that the project proceeded smoothly which is a credit to all parties involved.  This further underlines our capabilities in being able to be at the heart of the renewable energy industry.”
