It was ‘rocky roads’ all round at Vattenfall’s South Kyle Wind Farm earlier this month as a local tearoom helped the major construction project by fulfilling an order for 300 tray bakes.
Carsphairn Tearooms rose to the challenge of baking a bulk order of tasty treats for the wind farm site after the Vattenfall team got in touch with their plans to mark Employee Appreciation Day and thank staff, contractors and suppliers working on the major construction project.
Launched in the summer of 2020, South Kyle Wind Farm is a major renewables energy project located between New Cumnock and Dalmellington in East Ayrshire and Carsphairn in Dumfries and Galloway. Construction is underway, with hundreds of people now building roads and infrastructure ahead of the installation of 50 turbines from next year. Throughout the project, Vattenfall is committed to maximising opportunities for local jobs and businesses, with many local people and contractors involved in the development.
Carol Kane, Vattenfall’s Regional Liaison Officer for South West Scotland, said: “Thank you to Lindsay and Paul at Carsphairn Tearoom for producing these amazing rocky road tray bakes and helping Vattenfall show our appreciation to our teams and contractors after their first winter on site. Maximising opportunities for local businesses is a key focus for Vattenfall, and so we were delighted to be able to thank our teams and support this local café at the same time. Needless to say, the rocky road tray bakes went down a storm!”
