Hywind Scotland, the world’s first floating offshore wind farm, has passed five years in operation since its commissioning in 2017.
Hywind Scotland, located off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland, is the world’s first floating offshore wind farm and has achieved a capacity factor of 54% over its five years of operations. With a capacity of 30 MW generated by 5 turbines, Hywind Scotland utilises the Hywind floating spar-substructure concept. The wind farm generates enough electricity to power the equivalent of 34,000 UK homes.
