Scottland Breaks Offshore Wind Records with Powerful Turbines and Innovative Foundations

According to Vattenfall, two offshore wind industry firsts have been achieved over the past two weeks in Scotland. On Monday, April 9 the company announced that it successfully installed the world’s most powerful single turbine – an 8.8-MW behemoth standing 191 meters from base to blade tip and boasting a nacelle that is larger than the London Eye. The turbine is one of 11 that will be installed at the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC), also known as Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm.
