UK: Trump Supports Anti-wind Farm Group

While the Scottish Parliament’s economy, energy and tourism committee is considering to invite Donald Trump to give “wind farm evidence“, the US tycoon is giving his support to the anti-wind farm group.

The tycoon’s staff, based at Trump Towers in New York, will be working on a daily basis with Communities Against Turbines Scotland (Cats), reported Herald.

Last month, Trump halted the work on a hotel and the golf resort housing plans until Marine Scotland makes the final decision regarding the offshore wind farm later this year.

On 1st August 2011, Vattenfall, Technip and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG), the joint venture (JV) partners behind a cutting edge Wind Deployment Centre in Scottish waters – the 11-wind turbine European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) off Aberdeen Bay – submitted their consent application to Marine Scotland.

The application seeks permission for work to commence on the construction and operation of the Centre.
