The 450MW Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) Offshore Wind Farm is one of the next major “shovel ready” infrastructure projects in Scotland.
Ewan Walker talks about the Planning and Consenting process for the NnG Offshore Wind Farm
The NnG Offshore Wind Farm will be located 15.5km off the Fife coast. When fully operational, it will generate electricity for around 325,000 homes, or all of the domestic properties in a city the size of Edinburgh, and displace 400,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.
NnG will create around 2,000 Scottish jobs for every year of construction.
NnG will make a £827m contribution to Scotland's GDP over the lifetime of the project.
The NnG Offshore Wind Farm Coalition was established to highlight the economic benefits of the project.
