World's biggest floating wind farm is coming to Scotland

Scottish Floating Wind Farm

Just days after Danish energy provider Dong announced it had signed off plans to build the world’s largest offshore wind farm comes news of another milestone in the UK’s push for renewable energy. The Scottish Government has confirmed it has given consent to another Scandinavian company, Norway’s Statoil, to build the Britain’s first floating wind farm. A park consisting of five 6MW turbines will be installed off the coast of Peterhead, eclipsing Japan’s single 7MW turbine to become the world’s largest offshore wind development.
