Offshore Wind

Why Fife works for Offshore Wind

With its long history of heavy engineering and supply chain service to the North Sea Oil and Gas industry, Fife is becoming the main focal point for Scotland’s expanding Offshore Renewables sector. Deepwater ports just 25-35 nautical miles from three large-scale proposed wind arrays, development land with quayside access and excellent transport, digital and logistics connectivity combine to make Fife an ideal location for Offshore Wind businesses.

Forth & Tay Offshore

Fife Council collaboratively with east of Scotland’s councils, key developers and Scottish Enterprise have set up a Forth and Tay Offshore Cluster. Forth & Tay Offshore is one of two supply chain clusters in Scotland formed in light of the UK’s Offshore Wind Sector Deal between Government and the offshore wind industry. The Scottish Government have also formed the Scottish Offshore Wind Energy Council (SOWEC) to help co-ordinate the wider industry activity across Scotland
