Britain’s biggest wind power installation plant to be built in Scotland
Britain’s biggest plant producing tower installations for wind power for use in the North Sea is to be built in Scotland.

According to the Recharge website, investors for the project are nearing a final decision on building the plant, to cost $130 million and set to become the key link in the industry supply chain in the country’s transition from carbon-based energy to renewable sources.

Global Energy Group has submitted a bid for construction of the plant, with plans to produce 90 to 100 towers for wind power annually.

The company also intends to organise training for gas and oil industry specialists to enable them to work in the field of  renewable resources.

According to 2019 figures, 30 % of electricity produced in Britain comes from renewable sources. And already from the beginning of 2020, wind power has overtaken gas as the main source of power production.

The British government has announced its intention to boost wind power capacity to 40 GW by 2030 from the current level of 10.5 GW.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that by that date every home in the country will be served with electricity produced from wind. The government intends to invest $200 million in the sector.
