Scots first minister speaks at AECC wind event

Scotland’s First
Minister, Alex Salmond, has used The Scottish Offshore Wind Conference and
Exhibition to pledge the Scottish
Government’s support for alternative
energy
.

The two-day event, which concludes today
at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC), was attended by
European business leaders in oil and gas
renewables.

The event attracted more than 450
delegates and 43 exhibiting companies, an improvement on last year according to
AECC MD Brian Horsburgh. “In the last year there have been major investment
decisions from many companies to develop their offshore business in
Scotland. We are delighted to bring
such a high calibre event to the city. We hope to continue this relationship in
the future.”

Director of business development for
Scottish Renewables, Calum McCallum, said the number of international energy
companies based in Aberdeen made it “the ideal location for this
large energy conference”.

This was a major factor in the AECC
winning the 2012 World Heavy Oil Congress, which it hopes will attract more than
1,000 international delegates discussing heavy oil technology
development.
