Wind energy – Seagreen
Vestas’ largest offshore wind installation is taking shape, with the first V164-10.0 MW turbine now installed on-site at the 1.1 GW Seagreen project in the outer Firth of Forth in Scotland.
This is Vestas’ first installation of a V164-10.0 MW turbine, and is now also the first 10 MW turbine installed commercially in European waters.
For Vestas, this installation is a major milestone in our growth story and demonstrates the ability of the wind sector to continue delivering technological progress, both offshore and onshore. In the wake of COP26 in Glasgow just one month ago, it is critical to remember that this sort of industrial progress is helping to build a cleaner energy system for us all, and contribute to the planet’s goal of Net Zero by 2050.
Seagreen is poised to become Scotland’s largest, and the world’s deepest fixed bottom offshore wind farm once complete.
