While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    World’s First Floating Wind Project Goes Online

    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
