The Scottish Government has this week confirmed that it has plans to build the world’s largest floating wind farm, a plan which comes as part of a new deal with Norway’s Statoil who will build a total of five 6NW turbines off the coast of Peterhead.

The company has already been given the go-ahead to install the floating wind farm, which is expected to generate around 135GWh of electricity each year, which would be enough to power 19,900 homes.

Check out the video below for a quick look at the plan.

The revolutionary floating wind farm is designed to capture wind energy offshore with minimal environmental impact. To make Hywind available in more markets and even more cost efficient, we would like to improve assembly and installation.
