Construction of Neart na Gaoithe offshore wind farm project to go ahead following financial agreements.
Forth & Tay Offshore would like to take this opportunity to congratulate EDF and the NNG team for reaching a Financial Investment Decision on the project. NNG, combined with the first phase SSE Seagreen project, will see around 1.5GW of offshore wind capacity deployed in the Forth and Tay estuaries by 2023 marking the region’s emergence as one of the key offshore wind clusters in the UK – this level of regional deployment will likely outstrip construction in the whole of North America across the corresponding period.
NNG presents opportunities for companies across Scotland and we are especially delighted that the ports of Dundee and Eyemouth have secured their biggest offshore wind contracts to date. We are delighted to welcome a number of industry leading tier one contractors to the region and we are very confident that our local supply chain will rise to the challenge of supporting the seamless delivery of this important Scottish infrastructure project.
FTO is delighted to be working in partnership with EDF to deliver a series of ‘meet the buyer’ events; details will be advised shortly.
