Korean Engineering giant Samsung has become the latest global manufacturer to announce plans for a British wind turbine plant, confirming today that it is to open a new facility in Fife that is expected to create more than 500 new jobs.

The £100m investment was announced at the Scottish Offshore Wind and Supply Chain Conference in Aberdeen and will see the company develop its new 7MW offshore wind turbine at the Energy Park at Methil near Fife.

The news was welcomed by Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond, who hailed it as further evidence of Scotland's central role in the development of next generation offshore wind turbines.
