Port of Aberdeen Response to ScotWind Leasing Round

Congratulations to the companies which have been awarded licences to build the next generation of Scotland’s offshore windfarms.

Bob Sanguinetti, Chief Executive of Port of Aberdeen, said: "Congratulations to the companies which have been awarded licences to build the next generation of Scotland’s offshore windfarms. It is exciting to see the mix of companies which will be instrumental in the drive to create green energy for millions in the future.

"As we move to the next stage, the need for project-ready, scalable infrastructure and experienced supply chains will be even greater. Our £350 million port expansion – the largest in the UK – and the expertise built up over more than 50 years in Aberdeen, will be invaluable for these ambitious offshore developments.

"We look forward to continuing our work with the winners from today’s ScotWind leasing round, ultimately ensuring Aberdeen and the surrounding area maintains its position as the energy capital of Europe."
