SCDI WELCOMES LAUNCH OF NIGG ACADEMY

Commenting from the launch of the new Nigg training academy, Highlands & Islands Manager for SCDI Fraser Grieve said:

“SCDI welcomes the creation of this exceptional facility, which has seen industry come together with the public sector to deliver the right skills to meet the potential, not only of Nigg, but the wider Inner Moray Firth.

“There is no doubt of the economic opportunity in this region and I hope that by establishing this academy, along with the designation as an enterprise area and the announced capital allowance tax break, we will achieve new investment into the Highlands that will grow the economy and create jobs.”
