New wind turbine approved for Fife Energy Park  

Credit:  Fife Today, www.fifetoday.co.uk 18 November 2011 ~~

A test site for a six Megawatt offshore wind turbine at Fife Energy Park has been approved.

2B Energy has been given permission to test a novel single, two-bladed wind turbine 20 metres off the coast, with the electricity generated being utilised locally.

In April 2010, 2B Energy Ltd, submitted an application for consent to construct and operate a demonstration wind turbine at Methil in Fife 20 metres offshore with a generating capacity of six MW. Since the application was submitted, 2B Energy made a number of material changes to their proposals. Fife Council supported the application and no public representations were received.

Over £10 million has been invested in Fife Energy Park, a joint venture between Scottish Enterprise and Fife Council to roll out the development of renewables infrastructure.
