Vattenfall, the company behind the off-shore development criticised by tycoon Donald Trump, has proposed the wind farm that spans two forests in East Ayrshire.
It comes after a larger planning application for the South Kyle site was rejected by Scottish ministers in 2008.
Vattenfall, which is based in Sweden, now hopes to build on land owned by the Forestry Commission and private landowner Tillhill Forestry to the east of Dalmellington.
Vattenfall said that 79 people would be employed at the site at the peak of construction.
If approved, it is hoped that the first power could be generated on site by 2018.
Objectors to the original application for South Kyle included Prestwick Airport, which raised concerns over the impact on air traffic control. Scottish Ministers said at the time that there was scope for a smaller-scale development of improved design on the site.
