Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund

  • Date published: 18/04/22

Foundation Scotland, working on behalf of Highland Wind Limited, is at the early stages of developing a community benefit fund for the Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm.

Community Benefit Fund

Foundation Scotland, working on behalf of Highland Wind Limited, is at the early stages of developing a community benefit fund for the Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm. The fund would likely become available on commissioning of the floating wind array project. The fund will support local projects that are focused on climate smart initiatives. 

We are consulting locally on the development of this fund and would welcome your views. You can provide feedback on the community benefit fund through an online questionnaire available here. A representative from Foundation Scotland will also be available at the in-person drop-in events being held in Reay on 11th May and in Thurso on 12th May 2022.

Skills Development

The Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm is supporting an Education and Training Fund which will provide scholarships to select students from Thurso and Farr High Schools, who are going on to higher education and training courses focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Renewable Energy. We are working with the high schools directly to deliver this. The first awards will be offered to students in May 2022.
