The project will be the first floating project in the world to feature wind turbines over 9MW. Kincardine, located 15 km southeast of Aberdeen Bay, will feature five V164-9.5 MW turbines in addition to a single V80-2.0 MW turbine already installed. The six-turbine project will feature Windfloat semi-submersible foundations and be located in water depth of 60-80 metres. The turbines will be installed in spring 2020 and will include a 10-year service and maintenance agreement.
