Application to extend windfarm

AN application is due to be submitted to add a nine turbine extension to a windfarm near Stonehaven.

Fred Olson Renewables has already had an application for 25 turbines on Mid Hill in Fetteresso Forest accepted and are now seeking permission to build a further nine.

Work on the original 25 turbines is due to start this year, and it is hoped that they will be operational in 2013, supplying electricity to Scottish and Southern Energy.
