HOW SCOTTISH
ENTERPRISE CAN HELP
Expert advice and support
for diversifation activity

In terms of production volumes, quality and cost the wind industry falls
between the aerospace and automotive industry;

Market information,
intelligence and insight

Potentially high maintenance costs means reliability is critically


important;

Infrastructure, including
R&D facilities

High levels of fatique loading on components exerts a significant demand


upon designs, materials, fabrication assembly methods and monitoring
systems.
