NEW jobs could be created at Scrabster to service a floating wind farm based off the north Caithness coast. Dounreay Trì Limited has agreed a deal with Scrabster Harbour for the port to become its service base for two floating turbines planned to be based nine km from the Dounreay coastline. If Scottish Ministers approve the project, it will create seven full time jobs at Scrabster and support many other jobs ranging from the harbour authority itself, through to fuel suppliers, cranage and other supply chain activities. Dounreay Trì Project operational and maintenance manager Simon Tuchewicz said, “Scrabster Harbour is an excellent facility, with great local infrastructure and support services that we believe can fully meet the operation and maintenance requirements over the 25-year Project life.”
