Due to changes made to the official Scottish Parliament website at the start of 2011, our parser that used to fetch their web pages and convert them into more structured information has stopped working. We’re afraid we cannot give a timescale as to when we will be able to cover the Scottish Parliament again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
John Swinney (Scottish National Party)
The First Minister welcomed the announcement on 9 March 2011 that Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) and Marsh Wind Technology have established a joint venture, Wind Towers Ltd, which has submitted a bid to acquire the Skykon Facility and has secured "preferred bidder" status from administrators, Ernst and Young.
The Scottish Government, Scottish Development International and Highlands and Islands Enterprise have worked closely with SSE and Ernst and Young in order to reach this position
The joint venture partners will now work through details of their bid.
