A plan to build the world’s first array of multiple floating offshore wind turbines in Scotland has been submitted by a former Scot-Govt. minister and the brother of another. Former LibDem MSP Nicol Stephen – now a member of the British House of Lords – and Allan MacAskill, whose brother Kenny is a former Justice minister in the SNP-Govt – have combined their respective companies, Renewable Energy Ventures Offshore and MacAskill Associates to form Pilot Offshore Renewables. This new company – Pilot Offshore Renewables – has applied to build an eight-turbine array 10-miles off Nigg Bay on the Aberdeenshire coast, to be called Kincardine Offshore Windfarm Ltd (KOWL).
