First turbine installed at Vattenfall’s European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre
A press release issued today (10 April) by leading European energy company Vattenfall announces that the “world’s most powerful wind turbine” has successfully been installed in Scottish waters.
Responding, Stephanie Conesa, Policy Manager at Scottish Renewables, said:
“Scotland is home to approximately 25% of Europe’s offshore wind resource and projects like Vattenfall’s European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre in Aberdeen promise to harness this potential on a massive scale.
“This ground-breaking facility leads Aberdeen’s ongoing transition from fossil fuels to renewables, and reinforces Scotland’s global energy status.
“As the windiest country in Europe with some of the deepest waters, we should be proud of Scotland’s burgeoning offshore wind industry.
“With many more promising offshore wind sites on our doorstep, we hope to see similar facilities deployed in Scottish waters in future so we can fully utilise our country’s natural resources.”
