Uisenis wind farm project has new owner

Lewis Wind Power (LWP) is in the process of transferring ownership of the 180MW Uisenis project to the Oppenheim family, owners of Eishken estate where the project is situated.

Although LWP will no longer own the project, we believe the Oppenheim family is in a strong position to realise the potential for a large scale wind farm at Uisenis.

The change in ownership should not impact on the needs case for the new grid connection with the mainland.

LWP and the Oppenheim family are firmly focused on working to secure approval from Ofgem for the new cable.

LWP remains committed to delivering the 180MW Stornoway Wind Farm.
