Broken Cross is a 48MW, ten turbine wind farm site which sits 3.5km to the northwest of Rigside in South Lanarkshire and close to Dalquhandy wind farm, a 45MW project currently in construction, which BayWa r.e. acquired from Brockwell Energy in May 2020. 

Gordon MacDougall, Managing Director, BayWa r.e. UK and Ireland, said: “Broken Cross is another high quality project developed by Brockwell Energy and we’re thrilled to add this new project to our growing UK portfolio of renewable energy generation sites. We look forward to starting on site and expanding Scotland’s capacity for wind energy generation, while creating opportunities for the local community through a significant community benefit package.” 

The Broken Cross site previously was a coal mine in a derelict state with significant restoration challenges when it was bought in 2013. Working with South Lanarkshire Council over the last eight years, Hargreaves have developed and delivered a site wide restoration scheme paving the way for the wind scheme and other industrial and agricultural uses. 

Alex Lambie, Chief Executive of Brockwell Energy: “We are delighted to complete a second transaction with BayWa r.e. that highlights the quality and value of the project we have developed at Broken Cross. The transaction proceeds will be reinvested to further expand our development activities at other sites and projects as we strive to deliver more projects to help achieve climate change goals. It has been a pleasure to work with BayWa r.e. on these transactions. I know they share our culture and values and will treat surrounding communities with respect and build out the project with care and attention to all local stakeholders. We will continue to be available to provide any support required to successfully deliver the project and see this formerly derelict mine site put into use that benefits all.”
