World's most powerful wind turbine successfully installed in Scottish waters

12.04.2018 | Vattenfall | corporate.vattenfall.co.uk

A hat-trick of offshore wind industry firsts has been achieved within a fortnight in North-east Scotland after the world’s most powerful single turbine was successfully installed for Vattenfall’s ground-breaking European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC).

The turbine is the first of 11 to be deployed at the ground-breaking facility in Aberdeen Bay. In addition, Vattenfall today confirmed that it is one of two turbines that have been significantly enhanced with further internal power modes to generate more clean energy from the EOWDC. The two turbines have each increased from 8.4MW to 8.8MW and this installation represents the first time an 8.8 MW model has been deployed commercially in the offshore wind industry.

World's most powerful wind turbine

Together with the nine 8.4MW turbines, this substantially boosts the EOWDC’s output to 93.2MW. This allows the facility to produce the equivalent of more than 70% of Aberdeen’s domestic electricity demand and annually displace 134,128 tonnes of CO2.
