THE Burn of Mar hydro scheme at Milton of Buchanan was officially opened by His Grace the Duke of Montrose at a special ceremony today (31 March).

The scheme – which was commissioned on 31 October last year (2015) – utilises a peloton turbine from Czech Republic suppliers Hydrohrom  to generate power with a peak capacity of 500 kilowatts.

Our feature from last August (read it here) tells all about the scheme whose main civils contractor was Luddon with powerhouse electrics handled by local company Alexander Fraser Electrical Services.
