Viking Wind Farm project celebrate as final turbine components roll on to site 2After six months of deliveries, the final convoy of wind turbine components for the Viking Wind Farm in Shetland took place on Thursday 3 August. Over 280 convoys were successfully completed since getting underway in February, which has seen over one thousand turbine components safely transported from Lerwick Port to Viking Wind Farm site. 
 
A specialist team from Police Scotland co-ordinated the convoys, with the turbine manufacturer Vestas being responsible for safely managing the process of getting the components from their factories to Lerwick and then taking their final journey to the Viking site. The installation of 103 Vestas V117 turbines which will operate in the 4.3 MW power mode continues to make good progress with 83 turbines now fully erected. Once complete in 2024, the 443MW Viking Wind Farm will be capable of producing enough energy to power the equivalent of almost half a million homes.
