SSE announced Danish manufacturer MHI Vestas as its preferred wind turbine supplier for its giant Seagreen project last night – as it urged Scottish firms to bid for further supply chain contracts. Seagreen, owned by SSE Renewables, is situated over 16 miles off the Angus coastline and could contribute over £2bn to the UK economy, of which £1bn could be in Scotland alone. The developer said it is set to host a series of ‘meet the buyer’ events in Aberdeen, Inverness and Dundee. It is now urging Scottish businesses to bid for a number of other contracts ahead of construction of “one of the most significant” construction projects undertaken in Scotland.
