When Donald Trump first dreamt about building his $1.6 billion golf complex off the beautiful coast of Scotland, offshore wind farms weren’t part of his plan.
But now it looks like that could be a reality after a $243 million joint venture was announced to construct the European Offshore Wind Deployment Center.
Trump issued a statement against the plans, saying he’d never have invested his own $60 million in the project had he known this would be the outcome,reports the Guardian.
According to Bloomberg, he also wrote in a recent email, “I am very disappointed that Scotland may allow the development of a wind power plant directly off Aberdeen’s beautiful coastline.”
Trump isn’t the first person upset over wind farms.Anti-wind power groups have argued that turbines may cause health problems, and Germany is looking into soundproofing underwater construction sites to protect whales from the noise.
David Rodger, spokesman for the Scotland wind farm project told the Guardian: “We have been in regular contact with the Trump organisation and acknowledge the concern raised.”
