MHI Vestas Turbine Installed at Kincardine Floating Wind Project
Kincardine floating offshore wind farm. The first V164-9.5 MW turbine was installed on a Principle Power WindFloat platform, the first of 5 such units to be installed at the Kincardine project.
Kincardine, being developed by Cobra Group, is set to be the largest floating wind farm in the world by nameplate capacity. The five units at the project will be installed about 15km off the coast of Kincardineshire, at water depths ranging from 60m to 80m. This first 9.5MW unit is expected to be anchored at the project site in December 2020.
Kincardine is expected to power approximately 35,000 Scottish households.
