A major North Sea wind power development off Aberdeen which was opposed by Donald Trump has generated its first power. A total of 11 turbines make up the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC). Power from the wind farm, developed by Swedish energy group Vattenfall, is being exported to the National Grid. Mr Trump battled unsuccessfully in the courts to halt the project before he became US president. He said they would spoil the view from his Aberdeenshire golf course at Menie. The 11 turbines are the most powerful in the world with a total generating capacity of 93.2 MW. It is estimated the wind farm will produce the equivalent of more than 70% of Aberdeen’s domestic electricity demand.
