The Crown Estate have granted a lease for what will be Europe’s largest floating wind farm. Following the announcement, Statoil has said construction work on the project will begin later this year. The project includes five floating turbines off the coast of Scotland.
Lang Banks, WWF Scotland director, said: “Successfully developing floating turbines could enable Scotland to secure even more clean energy from offshore wind in the future.
“With the right political support for offshore wind and other technologies, Scotland is well placed to become the EU’s first renewable electricity nation.
“However, if this is to happen then the forthcoming review of Scotland’s energy strategy must also include steps to improve energy efficiency, manage demand, and increase energy storage as well as interconnectors.”
Statoil’s Hywind project will see five turbines operate in waters around 12-18 miles off the coast of Peterhead, Aberdeenshire.
