BW Ideol said it had agreed “exclusive long-term access” to the former offshore oil fabrication yard near Inverness in northeast Scotland, described as “the largest brownfield port in the UK” with access to a 2.2km quay.

BW Ideol is one of a pack of early-movers in floating wind looking to secure infrastructure for local production to support what is expected to be a boom in floating wind deployment off Scotland and the wider UK.
