Stevenson welcomes offshore wind announcement

Banffshire & Buchan Coast SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the announcement that SSE have reached financial close on their Beatrice Offshore Wind Project in the Moray Firth, meaning the project will now progress.
Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“This announcement is excellent news for the economies of Banffshire, the wider North-east of Scotland and the Highlands.

“The Moray Firth is well placed to see some of the economic benefits of this multi-billion pound renewables projects which will support skilled jobs and more work for downstream suppliers.

“With further multi-billion projects in the pipeline for the Moray Firth the future for our harbours and for skills transfer from the oil & gas sector, which generates spend in our local economy, is very positive.

“The Scottish Government has shown welcome and global leadership on renewable energy – already powering through the target of generating half of Scottish electricity consumption from renewables.

“But this new project shows the potential to go even further – almost quadrupling Scotland’s offshore wind capacity – and will make a huge contribution to meeting our ambitious renewables and climate change targets.”
