MPSE Chief Executive Officer Akio Fukui said: “The successful development of this technology will make Britain a key player in the offshore wind supply chain, potentially leading to the development of manufacturing capacity delivering to the Scottish, UK and European markets. This exciting project squares the circle of Scottish-Japanese industrial history dating back to when Thomas Glover assisted in the creation of MHI in the 1800s. The first Japanese naval vessel was built in Scotland in the late 19th century, and now the first game changing offshore wind turbine will be built here too. “This builds on our existing partnership with SSE on low carbon energy developments, including offshore wind, and we are very pleased to be working with the UK and Scottish Governments to turn this vision into a heavy engineering reality.” as Mitsubishi annouce £100million investment in Scottish offshore windfarms.
