Scotland plans to increase offshore wind farms' installed capacity to 11 GW by 2030, Ecotown reports.
The government has revised the target, which was previously set at 8 GW.
Now the government has approved projects for offshore wind generation facilities with a total installed capacity of 5.6 GW, of which 1 GW of capacity has already been commissioned.
By the end of 2020, the Scottish authorities plan to launch a 10-phase green industrial revolution program. It is planned to invest €177 million in the production of new generation wind turbines, including turbines for floating wind farms.
Earlier, Vestas would install the "most powerful" floating offshore wind turbine in Scotland.
