Pentland Road Wind Farm

Xero Energy provided advice, calculations, connection application(s), negotiations, construction support and Grid Code compliance checking for the 18MW project to be served both by the existing island grid system and latterly by an HVDC link.


The work was wide ranging, including liaison with the financing organisation to address their concerns through to complete review, due diligence and assistance with the grid connection.  The project is currently built and operating and awaiting the HVDC connection to the Isle of Lewis for its latest 4.2MW of capacity.

With Xero Energy’s support, the project overcame both the commercial issues of connecting to an island system and some uncommon technical aspects related to the island grid.  Xero Energy’s support has continued into operation.
