MSP Welcomes Buckie Harbour Promotion

Buckie MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the launch of a new publication which has been produced to help promote Buckie harbour and the surrounding area as a site for industrial development relating to the offshore renewable industry.

The brochure, produced by Moray Council in conjunction with Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Skills Development Scotland, UHI Moray College and the Kinloss Skills Partnership, lays particular emphasis on the harbour area’s potential as an operations and maintenance base for offshore windfarm developments. Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“There is no doubt that offshore wind energy will become more and more popular in the coming years, with the Moray Firth in particular poised to see a large number of turbines developed.

“Should that come to pass then I want to see as much benefit as possible accrue from those developments to the communities of the Moray Firth coast. Buckie is ideally located to provide an industrial base and provide a boost to the local economy.

“I therefore congratulate all the agencies involved in pulling together this brochure which should serve as a valuable tool in encouraging these businesses to choose Buckie as their base.”
