The world’s most powerful floating wind system so far was completed when a 9.5MW MHI Vestas turbine was installed on a platform in Scotland ahead of deployment at the pioneering Kincardine project.

The V164 turbine – expected to be in place at the project site off Aberdeen in December – is the first of five that will be deployed at the 50MW Kincardine development, which will itself become the world’s largest floating wind array following completion next year.
