Hywind SCOTLAND pilot park (uk)
In October 2017, Hywind Scotland started to deliver power to the Scottish electricity grid. The Hywind pilot park lies offshore Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and marks an important step forward for offshore wind technology, potentially opening attractive new markets for renewable energy production worldwide. Statoil has installed a floating wind farm consisting of five turbines at Buchan Deep, 25 km offshore Peterhead, harnessing Scottish wind resources to provide renewable energy to the mainland. With 30 MW installed capacity, the wind farm will be able to power the equivalent of around 20,000 households.
