BayWa r.e. buys Scottish wind farm


United KingdomThe project rights for Broken Cross Wind Farm in South Lanarkshire, Scotland, have been acquired by BayWa r.e.

BayWa r.e. purchased the project from developer Brockwell Energy, which is located on a renovated coal mine.

Broken Cross is a 48MW, ten turbine wind farm site located 3.5 kilometres northwest of Rigside in South Lanarkshire, adjacent to the Dalquhandy wind farm, a 45MW project now under construction that BayWa r.e. purchased from Brockwell Energy in May 2020.

This acquisition expands BayWa r.e’s wind portfolio in Scotland and the United Kingdom as a whole.

Under Hargreaves’ ownership, the Broken Cross site has undergone an amazing renovation. Hargreaves obtained the land in 2013 from the liquidators of Scottish Coal in a decrepit state with considerable rehabilitation issues. Over the last eight years, Hargreaves has worked with South Lanarkshire Council to create and deliver a site-wide restoration scheme that has paved the way for the wind farm and other industrial and agricultural applications.
