Viking Wind Farm has reached a milestone following the successful installation of the project’s 52nd Vestas V117 turbine. The 52nd turbine is located in the Northern sector of the wind farm.
When complete, Viking’s 103 turbines will operate in the 4.3 MW power mode and generate up to 443MW of wind-powered electricity once fully operational. Installation of turbine components got underway in February this year, with all the tower base sections (pre-installations) erected across the site by mid-June. The completed tip height of each turbine is 155m. All turbines are programmed for full erection in 2023, with Viking expected to be fully operational by the autumn of 2024.
