Pilot Wind Farm Project could Electrify Aberdeen

Two of the biggest turbines in the world have been unveiled in Scotland as part of a project to harness wave power for electricity.
These two prototype turbines will be used as part of a pilot project to create sustainable energy from the North Sea.
The prototype turbines were showcased at Nigg, Invergordon, in a former oil fabrication yard in the Highlands of Scotland before being transported to the test site where these turbines, which are the largest in the world, will be installed next to the Beatrice Field in the Moray Firth, Scotland
European Energy Commissioner Andris Piebalgs inspected the turbines at Nigg. And SNP European spokesman Alyn Smith, MEP, said: "The project is a reason the commissioner came to Scotland and it is a real example of Scotland leading the world.
"What we saw today was the first phase in a development that could eventually provide enough electricity for the whole of Aberdeenshire, if not more."
Scotland's Deputy First Minister Nicol Stephen, a Lib Dem MSP, also joined Mr Piebalgs for the visit to Nigg.
He said that with projects such as the Beatrice scheme, Scotland could become a "renewable energy powerhouse".
The innovative project is being run by a Scottish-based consortium led by oil firm Talisman and power company Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE).
The consortium secured government funding more than two years ago, with £3m from the Scottish Executive and £3m from the Department of Trade and Industry.
If the £35m pilot proves successful, a full 200-turbine wind farm will be built 12 miles offshore.
It would be capable of generating one gigawatt of electricity, enough renewable energy to power the city of Aberdeen
