World’s “First” Floating Wind Farm in Scotland

The Scottish First Minister, Alex Salmond held discussions with the Norwegian state oil company Statoil, to develop the “world’s first” commercial-scale floating wind farm in the region. Statoil has identified two locations – one, off Lewis and another off Aberdeenshire – which it believes could be used as pilot parks for the first commercial development of Hywind floating turbines, where three to five Hywind units could be installed to test its commercial capacity.
