World's first floating wind farm to power 20,000 Scottish homes
The £210m project will supply 20,000 homes with clean energy
INSTALLATION has started on the world’s first ever floating wind farm off the coast of Peterhead.
The project was funded by Norway’s mostly state-owned Statoil energy, through a subsidiary called Hywind, and began yesterday as the turbines were tugged from Norway.
According to Statoil, the turbines – which will cover a four square-kilometre area off the Aberdeenshire coast – will power 20,000 homes.
