Scotland to build 10 GW offshore wind farms by 2030

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.
