Vattenfall has decided to invest more than £300 million to build Scotland’s largest offshore wind test and demonstration facility.

 

Lindsay Roberts, Senior Policy Manager at Scottish Renewables, said: “This announcement is great news for Scotland’s offshore wind industry, and together with developments at Levenmouth, Hunterston and Statoil’s Hywind project helps cement Scotland as a hub for innovation in the sector.

“The commitment of both Vattenfall and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group to the EOWDC is to be commended, and plans for the site will help develop the renewable energy supply chain in the North East and across Scotland.

“We have one of the best offshore wind resources in Europe and it’s hugely exciting to see development happening in our waters right now, with hundreds of jobs in offshore wind created in recent months in Campbeltown, Nigg and Wick.”
