World’s biggest floating wind farm taking shape. A major new £500 million offshore wind farm, visible from the coast around Stonehaven, has started to take shape. The plans were developed by Kincardine Offshore Windfarm Ltd (KOWL) and with the first dot on the horizon now making an appearance – six more turbines are expected to follow by the end of 2020. At almost 600ft high and expected to be generating power this year, the turbine is nine miles offshore between Stonehaven and Aberdeen and lies entirely within the Scottish Marine Area. KOWL director Allan MacAskill said that the project would be the biggest in the world when completed.
