The contract, already signed in 2018, keeps Scotland at the forefront of offshore wind innovation as the project will be the first floating project in the world to feature wind turbines over 9 MW.

“We are exceptionally proud that the world’s largest floating offshore wind park will feature the V164-9.5 MW turbine,” said MHI Vestas Chief Executive Officer, Philippe Kavafyan. “Bringing our technology and experience to Kincardine in Scotland advances our leadership in floating offshore wind and confirms our long-term commitment to commercial scale, floating offshore wind projects in the future.”

As floating offshore wind accelerates toward its full potential, MHI Vestas anticipates substantial learnings from Kincardine, enabling the turbine supplier to better understand installation and commissioning techniques, main component interactions, and power production.

Kincardine, located 15 km southeast of Aberdeen Bay, will feature five V164-9.5 MW turbines in addition to a single V80-2.0 MW turbine already installed. The six-turbine project will feature Windfloat semi-submersible foundations and be located in water depth of 60-80 metres.
