Principle Power, Energias de Portugal, Repsol, A. Silva Matos (ASM), Vestas Wind Systems A/S and InovCapital have announced the inauguration of Portugal's first offshore wind turbine on June 16th, 2011.

The turbine is installed on a floating foundation called the WindFloat. In addition to being the first offshore wind turbine in Portugal, this is the first offshore wind turbine to be installed without the use of any heavy lift vessels or piling equipment at sea. All final assembly, installation and pre-commissioning of the turbine and substructure took place on land in a controlled environment. The complete system was then wet-towed offshore using simple tug vessels. The WindFloat is equipped with a Vestas v80 2.0MW turbine. The system is located 5km off the coast of Agucadoura, Portugal.
