A Danish wind turbine manufacturer has confirmed a £multi-million investment to enable CS Wind to build a new offshore tower manufacturing facility in Argyllshire. This will be the first facility in the UK that can manufacture towers for offshore wind turbines and will be located alongside CS Wind’s current onshore facilities at Campbeltown. It will be able to produce at least 50 towers a year and 70 jobs will be safeguarded as a result. The DONG Energy investment will enable the contract for the first 95 towers built by CS Wind, which Siemens Wind Power has agreed to take, and will help in the establishment of a tower manufacturing facility in the UK.
