Scotland’s renewables sector has received another jobs boost as major companies continue to invest.
The Korean firm ‘Doosan’ intends to locate its research and development centre for renewables at its current site in Renfrew, creating up to 200 jobs.
They are also in talks with Scottish Enterprise to set up manufacturing and assembly facilities in Scotland – its favoured location for wind turbine development and production. Doosan expects its offshore wind plans in Scotland to create up to 1,700 new jobs.
Steel Engineering, also based in Renfrew, aims to create 120 jobs by expanding its business servicing a range of clean energy sectors, including offshore wind, wave and tidal power.
They are also in talks with Skills Development Scotland about developing a training school with Anniesland College in Glasgow.
