New website for Orion clean energy project

An ambitious project to establish Shetland as the first “green energy island” has launched a new website to share information.

The Orion clean energy project’s website  hopes to provide an online resource about the work  undertaken to transform Shetland into a centre for secure and affordable clean energy.

The website has been developed by Shetland company NB Communication and the SIC and includes information and content from all the strategic partners involved in the project. 

The SIC’s infrastructure director John Smith said: “Orion’s aims are wide-ranging, involving partners from a number of sectors, and it’s great to have such a comprehensive website now in place.

“The website shares a lot of up to date information on the project and promotes the opportunity for better engagement with individuals and organisation that are interested in the Orion project’s aims.”

    How to kill our seabirds, cetaceans, fish and fishing industry whilst destroying our mainland habitats, peat bogs and tourist industry in one easy go. Fishing gone, Tourism gone and all the usual fools and greedy ones lining their pockets. Green hydrogen and carbon capture! what a load of utter nonsense! How about mini nuclear? ditch the Greens and follow the science. Leave Orion to the scientifically illiterate, however well named. Orion was the hunter who could hunt and kill all!!!
