    World’s First Floating Wind Farm Powers Up off Scottish Coast

    Abby Harvey, October 20, 2017 (POWER Magazine)

    “…[Just off Scotland’s coast, the world’s first floating offshore wind farm] powered up October 18, delivering electricity to the Scottish grid…[The $2 billion, 30 MW] Hywind Scotland was developed by Norwegian oil company Statoil based on the results of an eight-year demonstration project located off the shore of Karmøy, Norway…[Each of the five 6-MW floating wind turbines] is 253 meters high, 78 meters of which are below the surface…

    …[Each] weighs about 12,000 tonnes and is secured to the sea floor with 15 suction anchors, each of which is connected to the turbine by 2,400-meter-long chains…[The project will include] a 1-MWh lithium battery storage system…[The] turbines are suitable for water up to 800 meters deep, opening up areas previously inaccessible for offshore wind…[because conventional] offshore wind turbines must be embedded in the sea floor, limiting their use to relatively shallow areas near shore…[Up to 80% of the offshore wind resources are in deep waters (+60 meters) where traditional bottom fixed installations are not suitable, including the west coast of the U.S.]…” click here for more
