In an announcement made on 15 December, the catapult said that the 7 mega-watt demonstration wind turbine, which is located in the Fife Energy Park on the east coast of Scotland near Levenmouth, is the world’s most advanced, open-access, offshore wind turbine dedicated to research.

The catapult says it will work with Fife Council and local education bodies to develop skills and training programmes in Levenmouth. The SgurrEnergy renewable energy consultancy company has been chosen to manage day-to-day running of the turbine.
