The reNEWS story ‘ Berwick Bank ‘could create 4,650 jobs in Scotland ‘ covers our work for SSE on their proposed Berwick Bank Offshore Wind Farm.
It includes the following quotes from Project Director Alex Meredith said: “SSE Renewables is committed to delivering investment in jobs and skills in Scotland through Berwick Bank Wind Farm.
“It is clear that if we obtain consent to proceed with Berwick Bank, it will provide a significant boost to the offshore wind supply chain and encourage investors to get involved in the sector in Scotland at scale.
“Consenting a project of this scale can provide the step change we need to see in Scotland to unlock investment.
“The analysis considers the project’s potential based on an enhanced UK supply scenario, where all plausible procurement decisions for local, Scottish and UK supply are included, which realistically illustrates the huge benefits to the economy if Berwick Bank is approved.
“It represents a significant opportunity to deliver high-quality green jobs that can be sustained throughout the life of the project.”
Once operational, SSE Renewables estimates that Berwick Bank would support around 500 jobs in Scotland (direct, indirect and induced), over the duration of the operational life of the wind farm.
Mona Pettersen lead our work on this project.
