Aarhus, Denmark - MHI Vestas has now installed the first V164 9.5 MW turbine, the most powerful turbine in use at a floating wind project, at the installation harbour for the Kincardine floating offshore wind farm.
Kincardine, being developed by Cobra Group, is set to be the largest floating wind farm in the world by nameplate capacity.
The five units at the project will be installed about 15km off the coast of Kincardineshire, at water depths ranging from 60m to 80m. This first 9.5MW unit is expected to be anchored at the project site in December 2020.
