The Scottish Government has this week confirmed plans to allow Norway’s Statoil to build the world’s largest floating wind farm, that will consist of five 6MW turbines that will be installed off the coast of Peterhead.
The Scandinavian company now has the go-ahead to install the floating wind farm that is hoped will generate 135GWh of electricity each year, enough to power 19,900 houses.

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.
