€40m for Aberdeen offshore windfarm

Plans for a proposed offshore windfarm in Aberdeen, Scotland, could receive €40 million in funding from the European Commission.

The Aberdeen offshore windfarm, which is a joint venture (JV) between Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) and Swedish utility Vattenfall, is also working towards gaining demonstrator status from the British Crown Estate.

AREG Chairman Jeremy Cresswell, says: “Coupled with the potential for this project to become a European test centre, benefiting local businesses and attracting new players into the region, this funding announcement puts Aberdeen in pole position as a UK renewable energy hub.”

The proposed windfarm called Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Ltd, could involve 23 turbines in a grid formation between one and three miles out to sea stretching about three miles from the Bridge of Don to Blackdog beach.
