LOCAL BENEFITS


Our approach

RES seeks to be a power for good in the communities that neighbour our projects by working openly and constructively to ensure tangible local benefits.

Some of the most direct and meaningful benefits that can be delivered from a project like this are jobs and employment for local businesses and contractors - particularly during construction - in addition to the use of local skills, services, and amenities. This can generate a significant amount of inward investment into the area.

As the project develops we will be engaging and consulting in more detail with the local community on the benefits that could arise from this project.


Opportunities for local businesses

RES is keen to hear from local businesses who may be able to offer skills and services during the construction of Cairnmore Hill Wind Farm.

At present the proposal is in development and expected to be submitted in 2017. We are now keen to start engaging with local businesses in order to understand the skills and services available locally and build a register of interest.

Examples of the sorts of opportunities that the project will offer are as follows:

  • Construction material suppliers - concrete, aggregates, building materials
  • Plant and equipment hire contractors - excavation, earthworks, craneage, welfare units
  • Labour hire companies - engineers, plant operatives, general labourers, cleaning services
  • Accommodation providers - hotels, B&Bs, cottages for rental

If you are interested in getting involved in the project and would like to be considered please click through to our online supplier portal to register your details.

Alternatively, you can email callum.whiteford@res-group.com or write to the team at:

RES will acknowledge all responses from local businesses and keep a register of their details. All expressions of interest will then be evaluated against project needs and if skills and services match requirements, follow up contact will be made at the appropriate time.
