Offshore wind drone port gets £26.5m of funding; Angus on the East Coast of Scotland has secured a share of £26.5 million government low carbon funding for the development of a ‘world class’ drone port that could see drones flying in the air to support offshore wind developments.

AimIng to provide businesses with viable cases, the airspace project will use drones and develop safe operations.

Part of new government investment plan, the grants are for low carbon and agritech projects in Angus.

Among the beneficiaries will also be various projects that will reduce the carbon impact of housing and utilise electric and hydrogen vehicles as low emission transport methods in the region.

Also to be supported with this funding are technologies which could improve food security, increase sustainable crop production and reduce agriculture’s carbon footprint while achieving net zero or or ‘carbon-negative’ production systems.

Iain Stewart, UK Government Minister said: “These are an exciting set of proposals for Angus with the ability to transform the region into a powerhouse for clean growth and green jobs.”
