Aberdeen Science Centre (ASC) and Vattenfall, the company behind the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC), have developed a series of public events and outreach activities themed around offshore wind and technology which will run from this month (January) until September 2018. It will be rolled out to schools and nurseries in the region.
ASC and Vattenfall will also be hosting events at major festivals including the May Festival, Techfest and the Energetica Festival. The programme has started at ASC with the launch of a two-month energy-focused exhibition where there will be turbine and foundations demonstrations, workshops and other associated activities. Vattenfall is also sponsoring the ASC’s annual activity weekend on February 11 and 12 when the centre will also open its doors to the public for a free Windfarm Discovery event in its Energy Zone. As part of this, Vattenfall will be showcasing the technology being deployed at the EOWDC that it is developing off Aberdeen Bay. Members of Vattenfall’s project team behind the EOWDC will be on hand to talk about the project while ASC will also run interactive workshops.
