WORK to transform historic buildings in Wick’s waterfront into a support base for a cluster of 84 giant wind turbines due to go up off the east Caithness coast is scheduled to start in January. Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd (BOWL) is ready to submit a planning application for the renovation of two buildings at Harbour Quay which is to base its £10 million venture. Details of its involvement in the £2.6 billion wind farm were revealed at a public exhibition in Wick. BOWL originally planned to put up a new building on the Telford jetty to serve as its operations and maintenance base.
