North Kyle Energy Project Visualisations and Photomontages


Visualisation – Photomontage

Working with Ramboll, Arcus were awarded and prepared the LVIA visualisations (photomontages) for the North Kyle Energy Project.

The North Kyle Energy Project is a proposed 54-turbine development located approximately 4km northeast of Dalmellington in the East Ayrshire region of Scotland.

Arcus were sub-contracted to complete the visualisations which incorporated wirelines, cumulative wirelines and photomontages. The visualisations had to meet the Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) guidelines.

Photography files were supplied by the client to the Arcus visualisations team and were processed in-house. This involved stitching of the single frame images into panoramas using both cylindrical and planar (rectilinear) projections. In total 29 viewpoints were used in the final submission of the Environmental Impact Assessment Report or EIAR (these included 4 Cultural Heritage locations). The cumulative wind farm assessment and corresponding wirelines incorporated 76 sites.

The huge body of work resulted in Arcus producing 146 A1 sized figures for the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA) element of the Environmental Impact Assessment Report.
