PETERHEAD’S Palace Hotel will host the first in a series of public information events relating to the proposed offshore wind project off Aberdeen Bay.

Vattenfall, Technip and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG), are the joint venture partners behind the Wind Deployment Centre in Scottish waters - the 11-wind turbine European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre.

The roadshow kicks off from 2-8pm at the Palace on Monday, August 29.

David Hodkinson, UK country manager of Vattenfall, said: “The public information events for the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre are an important part of the formal consultation and decision making process and they follow on from our recent submission of a consent application to Marine Scotland.

“We believe we have made a strong case for the environmental and economic benefits of the EOWDC. I would like to encourage people to make their own judgment after viewing the information that we will present at the events and speaking to members of the project team.”

August 30 - Udny Arms, Newburgh

August 31 - Ellon, Kirk Centre
