Moray West, an 860MW offshore wind farm in the outer Moray Firth, is sponsoring a series of community events in Moray and Aberdeenshire in the first full summer following the pandemic. As well as sponsorship, the Moray West team will be talking with visitors at the branded gazebo.
The team look forward to sharing the plans for the construction and operation of this major renewables project that will make an important contribution towards Net Zero as well as creating local long term careers in this growth sector.
To date the team have been at two Queen’s Jubilee events, one organised by the Sandend Amenities Council in Aberdeenshire and the other by Strathisla Community Council in Moray. The team will be ready at the gazebo at this weekend’s Portsoy Traditional Boat Festival where around 16,000 visitors are expected to attend the festival over the three days. On the 24th July the gazebo will be staffed at the Fordyce Open Village event, on 31st July at the Cullean Sea School Gala and then the Keith Show on 7 and 8th August.
Through sponsorship and visibility at this series of community led events the project continues its long running programme of informing communities on progress of the project. They also provide opportunities to highlight the many benefits that the project is bringing to the area as well as making an important step to reduce Carbon emissions from the power we use.
“We thoroughly enjoyed sharing news about our fantastic project during the amazing weather over the Jubilee weekend. We look forward to talking to many more people at the other events we’re supporting and attending with our gazebo. We’re easy to find and eager to tell our story, as well as answer questions. As we enter the construction phase of the onshore works and will shortly start building our new operations base in Buckie there’s plenty to share. As the new facility in Buckie takes shape through 2023, we’ll start to build our local team of around 60 staff, helping to diversify the local economy.”
