Port secures deal for offshore wind farm in Scotland

Mainstream has signed an option agreement with Hunterston Port and Resource Campus (Hunterston Parc) for land that will be used to build the enabling infrastructure for its proposed offshore wind farm.

The port, in Ayrshire, Scotland, will be used to construct vital components of the wind farm including the substation and the cable landing.

The latest deal comes three months after Peel Ports signed a similar agreement with cabling company XLCC for a facility to include two factories.

Andrew Martin, Peel Ports’ group land and property director, said: “We are excited to be working in partnership with Mainstream as part of the wider regeneration of Hunterston.

“Mainstream is a highly respected and credible developer of offshore assets, and we welcome their long-term commitment to Hunterston Parc.

“Hunterston is one of Scotland’s largest brownfield sites and its largest deep-water port. This agreement demonstrates the role it can play in meeting the challenge of a green economic recovery.”

Cameron Smith, Mainstream’s general manager of offshore, said: “Mainstream is committed to working in collaboration with Peel Ports to help develop the park at Hunterston to service the green economy.”
