True Energy Transition: Oil rig to be green energy centre

A former oil rig fabrication yard off Scotland’s Highlands is set to become ‘fully circular energy transition facility’.

The site, where 4,500 workers built oil platforms, closed in 2001.

New plans are to recycle steel – left over following the decommissioning of North Sea oil and gas facilities – and manufacture concrete, to create wind power capacity.

The facility will be powered by renewable energy.

The project is supported by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and BW Ideol of Norway.
