Areva commits to Scotland turbine plant

A French wind turbine manufacturer that had earlier criticized Britain's wavering energy policies this week announced a major new facility in Scotland.

Areva, which has headquarters in Paris, said Monday it had reached a memorandum of understanding with Scotland's economic development agency to site an industrial facility near the Firth of Forth to manufacture its 5-megawatt turbines for offshore wind power projects.

The facility will add to a growing cluster of wind industry businesses in Eastern Scotland and has the potential to create 750 direct jobs in manufacturing wind turbines and blades, the company said.
