The operator of the Aberdeen Bay windfarm confirmed last night it has applied for consent to “prolong” the life of the development.
Swedish windfarm firm Vattenfall has tabled a request to Marine Scotland for a design life extension from 22 years to 25 years of the project, also known as the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC).
Vattenfall said the extension would benefit the north-east and Scottish economy and prolong local jobs.
