Space Hub Sutherland achieves planning consent
Osprey is proud to be part of the team supporting Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) in the development of a £17.3 million satellite launch spaceport at the A’Mhoine peninsula in Sutherland. The project achieved a major milestone on Friday (26 June) by achieving planning consent from the Highland Council.
The project, known as ‘Space Hub Sutherland’ is set to become the UK’s first commercial vertical launch facility. The ambitious plans will see vehicles carrying commercial satellites launched vertically into space for earth observation.
Osprey is privileged to be part of such a unique and exciting venture and will support HIE in developing the airspace solution for the spaceport.
The first launch from the Sutherland site could be as early as 2022 and the spaceport will host up to 12 launches per year once fully operational. The project will include a launch operation and control centre, launch site integration facility, single launch pad, antenna park and associated site infrastructure.
