Embracing the Energy Transition

By being part of the bid working to bring Scotland's green energy ambitions to life

As an automatic and manual welding industry leader we have been renowned for our services and quality welding for almost 50 years and we are now pleased to be a part of the bid working to bring Scotland’s green energy ambitions to life through Cromarty firth and the highlands. Through our experience and hard-work we are part of a consortium of sixteen organisations who are closely collaborating to produce a competitive bid for #GreenFreeport status, which will be submitted to The Scottish Government and UK government on June 20th.  The primary objective of Opportunity Cromarty Firth is to maximise local benefits from a pipeline of renewable energy projects that will create jobs, attract inward investment, research and development, as well as placing the Highlands at the forefront of the country’s commitment to becoming a net-zero economy. Boasting sheltered, deep water, and spanning 46 miles of coastline, Cromarty Firth is an excellent location to establish a Green Freeport. The region is steeped in industrial history, having supported North Sea energy activity since the 1970s, it is now playing a critical role in the renewable Offshore Wind sector. A Green Freeport in the Cromarty Firth would aid in the creation and security of a sustainable pipeline of supply chain opportunities in the development of low-carbon technology, as well as bringing significant revitalization to the Scottish Highlands and the creation high-quality jobs.
