The foundations are now being dug for an energy centre at the £333 million Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.
Construction on the facility’s groundworks, drainage and concrete foundations are already under way with the steelworks due to be erected later this month.
Once complete, the centre will host the largest fuel cell installation in Britain, generating electrical outputs reaching 1.4MW, to provide power, heat, and cooling for the prestigious development.
Councillor Jenny Laing, Aberdeen City Council’s co-leader, said: “The new AECC which will open in 2019 is designed to be a world-class exhibition, conference and meeting room venue. We also want it to be a leader in using sustainable technologies.”
