Hatston industrial units

Six new industrial units for the renewable energy sector were completed at Hatston in 2012.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) invested £2.95 million, including £1.18 million from the European Regional Development Fund, to create these next to Hatston Pier, Kirkwall.

Each unit provides workshop, storage and office accommodation to meet the needs of tidal energy developers using the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) test site off the island of Eday.  They were all flexibly designed to be adaptable to the needs of individual businesses.

Three are currently available for lease.

For further detailed information on the units, interested parties should get in touch with Harvey Stevenson at HIE: harvey.stevenson@hient.co.uk.
