Formed in 1992, Shetland Aerogenerators operates from our office in Lerwick. As the owners of Burradale windfarm, we have acted as developer, constructor, operator and client at various stages of the project.
We were initially established to investigate new opportunities in wind power after the Government announced the Scottish Renewables Obligation.
Now we undertake selective development of our own wind energy projects and we support the concept of large scale wind energy advancement in Shetland.
