The closure of a turbine manufacturing plant will not disrupt power supplies to cheap electricity users, an energy company has insisted.
Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) told BusinessGreen that the shutting down of a factory in Argyll and Bute will not affect its wind farm projects.
A spokeswoman told the news source that, following the announcement that plant owner Skycon has filed for administration, SSE still expects to receive its contracted 152 turbines for its Clyde wind farm.
"This does not jeopardize the development of our wind farms. We do use a lot of different manufacturers," the energy supplier's representative explained.
However, the closure of the site is likely to affect many people with jobs there, as Unite union pointed out.
"As the biggest employer in a remote area with high unemployment, this latest development is a blow to the local economy," the union said.
