Force 9 commissioned RSK to prepare an environmental statement for the Blackwood wind farm. The Blackwood wind farm would be located within the Blackwood Estate, near Auldgirth, approximately 14 km to the north of Dumfries and adjacent to the west of the existing Dalswinton wind farm (a 15-turbine wind farm operational since 2008). The development would consist of five wind turbines, a small substation building and a permanent mast to collect weather data for the site. Some existing access tracks would be upgraded and new sections of track would be built within the estate to give vehicular access for constructing and servicing the turbines.
