SSE and Mitsubishi sign low carbon technology deal

SSE and Mitsubishi sign low carbon technology deal
Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) has signed a deal with Mitsubishi which will see the pair collaborate on the creation of low carbon technologies.

The agreement will cover a range of areas including offshore wind farm development, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and smart grid technology.

Some 100 new high-skilled engineering jobs are expected to be created through the deal at the Centre of Engineering Excellence in Renewable Energy, which was set up in conjunction with the University of Strathclyde in 2009.

Over the next five years the number of jobs at the centre is expected to total 1,000.

Colin Hood, chief operating officer of SSE, said: "This agreement represents one of the most significant industrial partnerships to be established in Scotland since the heyday of North Sea oil – and low carbon energy represents Scotland's biggest economic opportunity since then."

Initially the agreement will see the pair focusing on the deployment of low carbon vehicles and power from offshore energy sources.

SSE also announced recently that it is to develop CCS facilities at its Peterhead gas-fired power plant in Aberdeenshire, plans for which were initially put forward in 2007.ADNFCR-1235-ID-19893744-ADNFCR
