Scrabster Harbour announcement (22/11/10)
The Highland Council has welcomed the announcement by Highlands and Islands Enterprise to award Scrabster Harbour Trust £5 million to help develop the harbour as a key component of Scotland's renewable energy infrastructure.
Convener Councillor Sandy Park said: “The news of the approval of £5m from HIE should be very welcome not just in the north but throughout the Highlands. Scrabster is well placed to take advantage of renewable energy developments in the Pentland Firth, and oil and gas developments in the Atlantic province. We hope that Scottish Govt will provide the remaining funds to meet the significant gap which remains for this flagship project.”
