Talks over wind plant closure

Wind turbines
Vestas may sell the Kintyre site as a going concern

Management at a closure-threatened wind turbine plant in Argyll and Bute are in talks with two firms from Denmark to save the plant.

Vestas, which is also Danish, said it hoped to reach agreement with EVO or Welcon over its Campbeltown site.

In August, the firm announced it would close the plant with the loss of 98 jobs, saying it was losing money.

Two months later Vestas agreed to delay redundancies to allow the Kintyre site to continue as a going concern.
