The Scottish government has launched the Scottish Innovative Foundation Technologies Fund, a 15 million British pound fund to support the development of offshore wind turbine foundations.

The fund, to be managed by Scottish Enterprise and Highlands & Islands Enterprise, is available to offshore wind manufacturing projects focused on prototype foundations for water depths greater than 30 meters.

When announcing the fund, Fergus Ewing, Scotland's Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism, said, "Offshore wind is one of the world’s most exciting cleantech sectors where Scotland already plays a leading role. Scotland pioneered the world’s first deep-water offshore wind development, and our innovation and offshore engineering expertise will play an increasingly important role as the industry moves to harness the wind further offshore.”
