WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL WIND TURBINE INSTALLED IN SCOTTISH WATERS - WWF Scotland comment

 

Commenting on the news today (Tues) that the world’s most powerful single turbine has been successfully installed for Vattenfall’s ground-breaking European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) [1] Gina Hanrahan, Acting Head of Policy at WWF Scotland said:

 

“The installation of the first of these powerful turbines at Aberdeen Bay is another milestone in Scotland’s renewables story. Offshore wind, which has halved in cost in recent years, is critical in the fight against climate change, helping to reduce emissions, keep the lights on and create thousands of jobs across the Scotland and the UK.

 

“Developments like this have an important role to play in securing the Scottish Government’s target to meet half of all Scotland’s energy demand from renewables by 2030.”
