Crystal Rig Wind Farm is an operational onshore wind farm located on the Lammermuir Hills in the Scottish Borders region of Scotland. When it was completed in May 2004 it was the largest wind farm in Scotland. As a result of 3 extensions it is currently the 2nd largest wind farm in the UK, both in terms of nameplate capacity and number of turbines.
The wind farm was developed and is owned by Fred. Olsen Renewables Ltd. part of the Fred. Olsen Group.
The farm has been built in 4 stages:-
Crystal Rig: Completed in May 2004 it consists of 20 Nordex N80 turbines producing a maximum of 50 MW.
Crystal Rig 1a: An extension completed in May 2007 adding a further 5 similar turbines to increase the maximum to 62.5 MW.
Crystal Rig 2 & 2a: Both completed in September 2010 they consist of 60 Siemens SWT-2.3 turbines in total capable of producing 138 MW.
The whole site therefore has 85 turbines and a nameplate capacity of 200.5 MW.
A third phase has also been assessed for potential development. This would extend the farm to the north of Crystal Rig 2a. It could consist of between 9 and 18 turbines and make use of the spare capacity in the grid connection.
