Scottish port gets £5m upgrade ready for wind turbine business

A £5.2m ($8.1m) overhaul of Aberdeen Harbour is to be carried out so that it can be a key hub for offshore wind farm developers.

Aberdeen is the main port in the northeast of Scotland and already has a high volume of traffic from oil and gas vessels.

Harbour Board chief executive Colin Parker said that once the port’s navigation channel was widened and deepened it would enable the port to be “involved in new markets such as offshore wind turbine deployment”.

He added: “As the centre of activity for the energy industry’s marine operations in northwest Europe, the importance of targeted investment and development has been a top priority and, with the energy industry evolving, we have worked hard to ensure we stay ahead of the game.”
