Windfarm focuses in on Wigtown Bay

WIGTOWN BAY has been identified as one of ten locations in Scotland for a giant offshore windfarm following permission from the Crown Estate for firms to explore the sites.

Scottish Power and E.ON are among the nine firms to be awarded exclusivity agreements for the locations, allowing them to begin surveying the sites while a Government environmental assessment is conducted.

The wind farms have the potential to generate 6GW of power, if approved.
