The Ben Mor Hydro project was originally a joint venture between Coigach Community Development Company (CCDC) & Scottish Wildlife Trust (SWT) with the aim of developing a ‘run-of-river’ hydro project near Achiltibuie, North West of Ullapool. The project got planning consent in 2014 and Locogen was appointed as project manager & owner’s engineer early in 2015 to take the project through the construction phase.
