World first for wind energy


The ‘world’s first offshore floating wind farm’ is heading to its permanent home off the north east coast of Scotland.

Norwegian energy giant Statoil and its partner Masdar are behind the – five turbine – £200 million Hywind project, which is also being backed by subsidies from the Scottish government. The groundbreaking installations will be located 25km from Peterhead – and capable of powering 22,000 homes. The wind farm will be operational from the autumn.

Watch the mammoth effort to transport the turbines from Norway get underway in this video.
