The 450MW Neart na Gaoithe (NnG)
offshore wind farm is a £2 billion investment in Scotland’s energy infrastructure and is ready to build next year.
The NnG Offshore wind farm will be located 15.5km off the Fife coast and will create hundreds of direct and indirect jobs in the construction and operation phases of the project. When fully operational, it will generate sufficient 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 500 direct jobs during construction and over 100 direct, permanent jobs, once operational.
NnG will generate an estimated £540 million in revenue during construction and bring an additional estimated £610 million in revenue for Scottish businesses.
The NnG Offshore Wind Farm Coalition was launched in August 2017 to highlight the economic benefits of the project.
