SHETLAND Islands Council has submitted an expression of interest in support of the possible development of offshore wind to the East of the islands. The matter was raised at a meeting of Shetland Islands Council’s (SIC) harbour board on Wednesday, with the port of Sullom Voe highlighted as a site which could prove useful. A potential site in the water to the east of Shetland is one of many locations included in a Scottish Government plan for future offshore wind development. Infrastructure director John Smith said the jetty berthing facilities at Sullom Voe could potentially offer the size needed for vessels carrying offshore wind equipment.
