Swedish power utility Vattenfall is set to construct a SEK3bn ($349M) combined wind farm and technology development centre off the Scottish coast.

To be called ‘European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre’ (EOWDC), the wind farm will feature 11 turbines and have a capacity of 92.4MW.
In addition, the company will build a centre for testing and developing new technologies for offshore wind power.
Vattenfall’s president and CEO Magnus Hall said: “We aim to double our wind power capacity from 2 to 4GW by 2020 and are focusing on reducing and streamlining our offshore wind power costs.
“Our investment in the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre off Aberdeen is an important part of this process.”
Onshore construction will start in late 2016 and offshore construction work is anticipated to commence in late 2017 with power generation expected in early 2018.
