First Minister Nicola Sturgeon visited Nigg Energy Park this week to unveil the first turbine built for the world’s largest-planned wave energy park.

Scotland will be home to the world’s first ever large-scale tidal stream farm as part of a drive to develop Scotland’s marine renewables industry, creating jobs and investment.

The first phase of the project, developed thanks to £23m Scottish Government funding, is expected to further develop the marine renewables industry and open up vital skilled job opportunities for those who are moving from the oil and gas sector.
