The first of five turbines for the “world’s largest” floating wind development will be towed to location off the Aberdeenshire coast in the “next few weeks”, according to the manufacturer. Earlier this week in Rotterdam, MHI Vestas successfully attached the first turbine for the Kincardine Offshore Wind Farm to its floating foundation. According to the Danish-firm, the V164 9.5 megawatt model will be the “largest and most powerful” in use at a floating wind project. The five turbines for the project are being installed on Principle Power WindFloat platforms, which were transported from Ferrol in Spain for construction in Rotterdam by Netherlands-based Boskalis.
