Exciting to see the ScotWind success of Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and their consortium partners SSE Renewables and Marubeni Corporation today.
The announcement of the ScotWind results marks a historic moment for the growth of offshore wind in Scotland, cementing the country’s position as a global sector leader.
This comes just over a year after we launched our Floating Wind Competence Centre in Edinburgh. Scotland’s strong maritime heritage and history of innovation makes it the ideal place to start our growing global floating wind ambitions and support CIP’s global floating pipeline. We are developing this centre in collaboration with the local industry to establish a base of Scottish floating wind expertise which can be harnessed domestically and internationally.
Over the past 12 months, we’ve built a strong team and we’re looking to continue this growth in 2022 and beyond, recruiting for skills across a range of roles. This will support us in the development of the Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm. This is a key steppingstone project to growing the local supply chain’s expertise and experience ahead of the ScotWind development phase.
Our Centre in Edinburgh will benefit from our rapidly growing international presence – we now have offices in Italy, France, Spain, Poland, Copenhagen, Australia, the USA, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan and Vietnam – by sharing and transferring knowledge and lessons across these development hubs.
