Offshore Renewables - Buckie Harbour
Consents are now in place to build around 400 turbines in the Moray Firth. Buckie Harbour has vast potential to accommodate an onshore Operations and Maintenance (O&M) base for these offshore wind developments. The Moray Council in partnership with Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) has produced the following materials to promote Buckie Harbour to the offshore renewables industry.
