Dundee in running for major job boost through wind turbine plans
Gamesa, a Spanish wind turbine maker, has opened a wind technology centre in Glasgow and is deciding where will be chosen to supply the base. Dundee is currently up against Hartlepool to secure this major job boost and opportunity.
Jorge Calvet, chief executive and chairman of the company, said,
“We are still in the process to identify where to put the manufacturing site. I believe the offshore wind industry will develop very quickly. Wherever we set up ourselves, our aim is to look for local suppliers and help them to develop so they supply us.”
The company have taken this approach in several countries over the world.
He spoke about the current decision at the Scottish Low-Carbon Intestment Conference, which took place in Edinburgh this week. We previously mentioned the conference, referring to Al Gore’s anticipated appearance.
