Comment posted on Karl Hughes: impacts of the proposed Tiree Array and divorce from the natural world by Malcolm Kirk

Well Tim this is your chance – In my rush earlier I produced that statistic from memory of something I have read recently – and it was in my head because I’ve start making the model of the tortuous seabed south of Tiree . I’m off to Oban with my better half to do the shopping, could you do a little research in the meantime and prove me wrong. I’ll be happy to admit an error if that is the case. I think I maybe read it somewhere on the NTA website !
Dr Douglas – I would have thought most even minded people would shown interest in the picture at the top of the page – its all to scale – so what are you trying to be clever about ?

  • I have received a reply from my friend in Denmark re the massive wind farm to be built at Anholt on the East side of Denmark which somebody above had compared to the Tiree Array proposal . I quote” the Anholt windmill park is based on very shallow sandy waters, in fact the whole island is a sand reef with its own desert, and can’t be compared with the Skerryvore seabed at all. Please remember that without the tax relief and government subsidised Kw price when buying power from the windmills,nobody would be invested in the damn blights in the first place. I will reply more fully’
  • I thought we all had agreed that gas stations can be fired up in one hour should more than the base load from Nuclear be required. No? A quick story – a few years ago we owned and ran the Lord of the Isles Bar and Restaurant at Craobh Haven. On one particular evening the lights starting dimming and a voltage test showed 215v. We phoned the Hydro Board and someone – somewhere in Scotland – said ‘ OK we’ll open up the Oude dam a bit’ (That’s a small reservoir 15 minutes up the road towards Oban.) Low and behold within minutes the light came back up. Couldn’t have done that using wind turbines !
  • Bloody hot here as well !
  • Just found this by Mr Haseler which he submitted to the ‘Inquisition’ at Holyrood – really , really good reading – I commend it to you – not too long so won’t take much of your time – but says it all ! At least Donald and I think so!

  • I see it’s too early in the morning for you – There are 4 legs supporting the turbine base – they have to be the same length + or – 1 metre. Karl is that measurement top or bottom?
