First Minister Nicola Sturgeon lauded the “huge potential” for the future of Scotland’s energy sector as she officially opened the Aberdeen Bay offshore windfarm development.

Swedish firm Vattenfall became sole-owner of the 11 turbine windfarm in 2016 when it bought a 25% stake from Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG), which was established in 2003 to promote green power.
