Roughly 110 jobs are expected to become available after recent planning permission has been granted to build the largest floating windfarm in the world. This will be built off the coast of North-East Scotland and aims to provide enough energy for 56,000 homes.
Scottish Energy Minister, Paul Wheelhouse, has predicted that with the news, this will help Scotland “cement our place as one of the world’s leading nations in the innovation and deployment of floating offshore wind.”
This is huge news for the offshore wind, wave and energy industries in Scotland as it promises to secure more jobs. Also with this announcement, Scotland will be on track to securing half of our energy from renewable sources by 2030.
