E.ON builds foundations for 25-turbine Caithness scheme
Energy firm E.ON has begun preparation for the second construction phase of a wind farm in Caithness.
The Camster wind farm will have 25 turbines capable of powering 35,000 homes.
Phase two consists of a temporary construction compound, wind turbine foundations, a permanent met mast to monitor weather and wind speed and more site access tracks.
Phase one work, which began in late 2010, included the construction of seven kilometres of access roads and the upgrade of three bridges.
The wind farm should be operational by mid 2013.
