Public consultation dates have been announced for the proposed offshore wind farm off the coast of Aberdeen.
Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group are applying to build a wind farm of 11 turbines off the coast of Aberdeen. The €40m project called the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre is being developed by Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Ltd, which is a partnership between Vattenfall Wind Power UK, Technip and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group.
The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre is essentially a live testing ground which will allow wind farm developers and associated supply chain companies to test new designs, prove existing products and receive independent validation and accreditation before commercial deployment. Any electricity generated will be sent to the National Grid.
If you want to know more about the project you can go along to one of the 5 consultation events where representatives will be available to speak to you about the project.
