Scotland upgrades Port of Aberdeen’s floating wind plans

2 April 2024

Port of Aberdeen’s plans to upgrade the South Harbour for floating wind have progressed to Stage 2 of the Scottish government’s wind power programme, it said in an April 2 statement. Deepening the quay will enable it to handle most of the ScotWind and INTOG project turbine designs.

Looking further ahead, it also positions the port to handle major component exchanges with tow-in, tow-out operations.

CEO Bob Sanguinetti said the Scottish Offshore Wind Energy Council’s decision was “a significant vote of confidence from both the Scottish government and industry in our £420mn expansion.” A final investment decision is expected to follow Stage 2.
