Global Wind Service is currently supporting MHI Vestas Offshore Wind with pre-assembly and installation activities on the Kincardine offshore wind farm.

The
Kincardine floating offshore wind farm is being built by COBRA Group, 15 km offshore from the Scottish coast of Aberdeen. It will have capacity of 50 MW and feature a 2 MW turbine and five 9.525 MW turbines installed on semi-submersible floating structures designed by Principle Power. The project is located in water depths ranging between 60 and 80 metres.

The 50 MW project comprises of five MHI Vestas V164 9.6MW turbines. It is the first V164 platform semi-submersible floating wind farm in UK Waters and upon completion, it will be one of the world’s largest floating wind projects to-date.

This follows pre-assembly and installation support by Global Wind Service to MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, for 25 MW
WindFloat Atlantic project during late 2019 / early 2020. The turbines were assembled in Spain and towed to their current location off the coast of Portugal.

“We have worked with MHI Vestas since its foundation in 2014, supplying and supporting them with a wide range of services. Moving into floating wind together means a lot to us and we are very happy to have been involved with Windfloat Atlantic, gathering valuable experience for Kincardaine”
commented Lars Petersen, Chief Commercial officer at Global Wind Service.
