The Areva group and Scottish Enterprise, a sponsored non-departmental public body of the Scottish Government, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on industrial site development for the manufacture of wind turbines in East Scotland.

The MoU is a step towards establishing an Areva factory in Scotland that will manufacture its 5MW turbines for offshore projects in the UK, complementing Areva’s Le Havre facilities that will supply France, Belgium and more southerly UK projects. It is part of the group’s strategy to establish a manufacturing base that will cover the European market from three main industrial hubs in Germany (Bremerhaven), France (Le Havre) and the UK (Eastern Scotland). Areva, actively tendering with major utilities in the UK offshore wind market, has chosen to locate its future facility in East Scotland to optimise logistics costs for UK projects and to benefit from a growing cluster of offshore supply chain businesses in the area. Its development has the potential to create 750 direct jobs in the manufacture of wind turbines and blades.
