The final turbine has been installed at Vattenfall’s record-breaking European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) in Scotland.
Eleven of the world’s most powerful turbines, designed by MHI Vestas, are now located in Aberdeen Bay; with a single rotation able to generate enough energy to power a typical household for 24 hours.
“We’re excited to see that the last turbine has been safely installed at Aberdeen Bay with our partner, Vattenfall. With clean power set to soon flow to the national grid from all 11 turbines, we very much look forward to operations and service at the new offshore wind park,” said Flemming Ougaard MHI Vestas Chief Operations Officer.
The 93.2MW EOWDC will generate its first power in the coming months and is set to meet 70% of Aberdeen’s ‘domestic electricity demand’.
This latest landmark moment, one of many for Scotland, is further evidence of its ambition to be one of the world’s leading renewable energy nations.
