Floating wind farm for isles  

The world’s first marine hydrogen wind-power development is being earmarked for the Western Isles, it emerged last night.

Early talks have taken place over installing a floating offshore wind farm between the Hebrides and the mainland.

The Dutch developer Blue H Technologies is considering building about 90 wind turbines 110 metres high on semi-submerged offshore platforms in the Minch between Lewis and Wester Ross.

The farm would have nearly 400MW of capacity and may be anchored up to ten miles off the islands.

Blue H representatives was in Stornoway recently to sound out support for the plans. It is understood the company would seek public funding for the project.

Meanwhile, The Scotsman understands the Scottish Government has rubberstamped planning permission for a £45 million wind farm at Feiriosbhal on Lewis.
