ENERGY giant EDF Renewables has revealed plans to add 60 roles to its team in Edinburgh to support its Neart Na Gaoithe offshore wind farm project.

EDF will increase staff numbers to more than 100 from 44 at the Atria One building as it gears up for the construction of the wind farm, which is due to begin later this year. The site, located 15.5m off the coast of Fife, will have the capacity to producer 450 megawatts (MW) of low-carbon energy, enough to power more than 375,000 homes. The expansion comes after EDF commissioned the Dorenell Onshore wind farm in Moray.
