30 November 2016
North East Labour MSP Lewis Macdonald has welcomed the news that Vattenfall has signed leases with Aberdeen Harbour Board to establish an onshore base to support the commissioning of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) in Aberdeen Bay. Lewis said :
“The EOWDC is a fantastic opportunity for the North East, and will lead the way in developing new technologies for offshore windfarms.
“The news that Vattenfall has now signed a deal to become the first offshore wind operator to establish a base in Aberdeen is good news for the city and for the region’s plans to diversify its energy industry.
“Offshore wind has huge potential in Scotland and the EOWDC will play a major part in reaching that potential.”
