The Event Complex Aberdeen is a 12,500 capacity exhibition and conference centre located near the Aberdeen International Airport and the new city bypass. The venue, which is currently being constructed by Robertson Group, will open this summer and host conferences, music concerts and exhibitions. It features a state-of-the-art energy centre that uses the largest hydrogen fuel installation in the UK.
Council co-leader Jenny Laing said: “Aberdeen is already a world-class city for energy production and energy innovation, so it is entirely fitting that we continue this expertise with our own new world-class venue.
Nick Harris, director of HBD in Scotland, said: “At the beginning of this project, Aberdeen City Council’s brief to us was that TECA should be one of the most modern and sustainable venues in the UK. After looking at all the options it became clear that generating green energy in an on-site energy centre was the best way to deliver that aim.”
Robertson Chief Executive Officer Derek Shewan said: “Completing construction of the energy centre marks another significant milestone in this landmark project.
“With our partners, we are building a world-class conference and exhibition centre and the new energy centre will ensure it is powered sustainably.”
