First Wind Turbines Arrive at Inverness

10th December 2012

The Port of Inverness recently welcomed its inaugural cargo of wind turbines. Arriving in two ships from Germany and Sweden, the 5 turbines were successfully offloaded for onward transfer to site.

Commenting on the arrivals, Chief Executive Sinclair Browne said, “We are delighted to see this cargo coming through Inverness. This is the culmination of several years’ hard work, starting with the foresight to develop first class facilities capable of accomodating this type of cargo and it is now fantastic to see this vision bearing fruit with these turbines being delivered.
The major attraction is the large open storage areas and ease of access to the main road network, both of which are of considerable benefit when dealing with this type of cargo.”

He continued “With renewables playing an increasingly important role in the Highland ecomony we are thrilled that we are able to to do our part in further developing this important industry. This puts the Port of Inverness firmly on the renewables map in the Highlands. We are also speaking to several other companies in this this sector about how we can assist with their development plans.”
