• Wind innovation in action

    Scotland’s energy minister, Paul Wheelhouse MSP (pictured), yesterday took a demonstration tour aboard the Sea Puffin, the world’s first 'daughter craft' based on Surface-Effect-Ship technology. This innovative design uses air cushion technology to dampen out motions in rough seas, enhancing comfort for crew and passengers. This allows for improved access to offshore wind turbines in harsh weather conditions, at the same time saving fuel consumption.
