Nigg best placed to create offshore wind jobs

Nigg Energy Park has been identified as the best prepared of Scotland's east coast ports to create jobs from offshore wind contracts in a new industry report. The Cromarty Firth facility's potential was highlighted in the findings of a strategic review, which also examined the capabilities of Invergordon, Aberdeen, Dundee, Montrose, Methil and Rosyth as well as ports on England's east coast. Conducted by the Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC), the study focused on the capability of ports to carry out "staging" work, storing and loading offshore wind farm components and carrying out pre-construction activities. It also assessed their ability to manufacture large components in or near their sites.
