The first power has been produced at Viking Wind Farm on Shetland. This landmark moment follows the installation of the final turbine at the 443 MW Viking Wind Farm. Engineers will continue to progress through commissioning ahead of the wind farm reaching full power and entering commercial operations later in summer 2024.

When fully operational, Viking’s 103 Vestas turbines will operate in 4.3 MW power mode and total 443 MW of installed wind-powered capacity, capable of generating around 1.8 terawatt-hours (TWh) of renewable electricity annually.

Shetland is also gearing up to be fully connected to the Great Britain electricity transmission grid for the first time, with the 260 km Shetland High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) subsea cable project being delivered separately by SSEN Transmission, which is expected to be fully energised later this summer.
