MHI Vestas confirms that the final V164-8.4 MW turbine atop Principle Power’s semi-submersible WindFloat Foundation has left the quay in Northern Spain and is sailing toward the project site.
When the final turbine arrives at its destination after a 250 km journey, WindFloat Atlantic will consist of three V164-8.4 MW turbines. The project site is located 20 km off the coast of Viana do Castelo in Portugal at a sea depth of 100 meters. The WindFloat Atlantic project is being developed by a consortium made up of EDP Renewables, Engie, Repsol and Principle Power. Once fully commissioned, the 25 MW project will deliver clean energy to 60,000 homes and provide insights related to progressing the future floating projects in the offshore wind industry.
