Flagship Scottish Offshore Wind Project, A Model For Bringing Interests Together

Beatrice Offshore Windfarm, off the coast of Caithness, will create 900 jobs and generate 588MW of power once operational in 2019. Hailed as the “flagship project for the Scottish offshore wind industry”; it’s claimed that the £2.6bn project will be one of the largest private investments ever made in Scottish infrastructure. Lang Banks, director of conservation group WWF Scotland says that: it’s “great news for the climate and Scotland’s economy, this single project will almost quadruple our offshore wind capacity, helping to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions as well as creating jobs and supporting local economic renewal.”
