Vattenfall-led Scottish wind power centre runs into more opposition

In an effort to get a $361m controversial wind farm project off the ground, Vattenfall have attempted to strike a deal with the UK Ministry of Defence, to assuage fears that the development will interfere with aircraft.

Vattenfall and its partners said they will provide a solution to combat any aircraft interference, reports STV.

Offshore wind project

The joint venture to develop the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre between Vattenfall, Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group and Technip has run into vigorous opposition from US tycoon Donald Trump, whose golf course is nearby.

However fresh opposition has now emerged in the shape of the National Air Traffic Services who are worried about the impact the turbines will have on aircraft radar systems.

The news comes eight days after Vattenfall and its partners confirmed they have signed Memoranda of Understanding with six potential suppliers interested in using the demonstration site.
