All 11 turbines have been installed at the Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm

All 11 turbines have been installed at the Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm

The final wind turbine has been installed at the Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm, located three miles from the Aberdeenshire coast in the North Sea. The 11-turbine farm, also known as the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC), will have a total capacity of 93.2MW. The power plant features nine 8.4MW turbines, and two 8.8MW turbines – the most powerful in the world. The turbines are set to produce enough energy that the farm could power 70% of Aberdeen’s domestic electricity demand. The turbines are also anticipated to offset 134,128 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year once power is generated in the summer. The EOWDC faced legal issues as the President of the United States, Donald Trump, argued the farm would spoil the view of his favourite golf course.
