Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm, the largest in Scotland, has been handed a top award by Scotland’s renewable energy industry.
The 588MW, £2.6 billion wind farm was shortlisted three times for its engagement with local communities; its innovative installation techniques and for its world-leading safety standards.
The Scottish Green Energy Awards, which took place in Edinburgh last night (December 5), saw winners in 12 categories receive trophies recognising their work in the sector, which employs 17,700 people.
Among them:
Balfour Beatty, Dundee City Council and ESB scooped the Carbon Reduction Award for the Caird Park Low Carbon District Energy Hub – a hybrid ground source heat pump, powered by a mix of renewables which supplies a district heating network to warm a large proportion of Dundee’s social housing.
Pict Offshore took home the Best Innovation Award for its transformative Get up Safe system, which provides ladder-free access to offshore wind turbines, increasing accessibility and significantly reducing costs.
Aberdeen City Council was recognised for its commitment to reducing carbon emissions, through developing the city’s hydrogen transport economy and supply chain, taking home the Sustainable Development Award.
