CS Wind UK has completed the first tower section for the offshore wind sector at its new facility at Machrihanish in Scotland.

Danish energy giant Dong Energy supported investment in the new factory, which is the first UK facility to manufacture towers for the offshore wind market.

Dong has “preferred access rights” to wind turbine towers built at the new plant. 

In a separate deal, Siemens awarded CS Wind UK “preferred supplier status” for multiple offshore projects.
