West Strathore is a 5MW solar project, located near Glenrothes in Fife on Scotland’s East Coast. Hydroplan was employed by the scheme lender to undertake a technical review of the project prior to construction and also to act as technical advisor during the construction process.
The first phase of the works comprised a review of the planning and legal documentation, the site layout and system design and the proposed costs, energy yield and timescales for construction. Part of this work also included drawing up a risk register with a traffic light system of red, amber and green risks for the lender to consider.
The second phase of the works involved site attendance during construction and a final report, post-commissioning.
