Hywind Scotland Making Progress

Hywind Scotland will be the world's first floating wind farm located 25 km off Peterhead.

All five Siemens Gamesa 6 MW turbines have been mounted on floating spar foundations in Norway and are due to be towed to site later this summer.

Developer Statoil expects Hywind to provide energy for 20,000 households when production begins late 2017.
