The last out of total nine tower sections is scheduled to be transported from the company’s Machrihanish factory to the harbour on 12 January.

South Korea’s CS Wind bought the factory, former Wind Towers Scotland, in April 2016, and announced plans to set up the first factory in the UK to commercially produce offshore wind towers, located adjacent to CS Wind’s current onshore wind facilities.

In July 2016, CS Wind UK signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Siemens to produce up to 200 towers for the company’s offshore wind turbines between 2017 and 2019.

The wind turbine tower manufacturer started working on the first sections in late August 2017, with the first unit completed a month later.
