Full Story of Hywind Scotland: World's First Floating Wind Farm
Some people thought we were crazy when we put a giant wind turbine on top of a floating spar structure and towed it out to sea. But it turned out to be the future, and the future is now. This year, we made a giant leap forward as we installed and started producing electricity from the world's first floating wind farm. The 30MW Hywind Scotland pilot park will demonstrate the feasibility of future commercial floating wind farms that could be more than four times the size. This will further increase the global market potential for offshore wind energy, contributing to realizing Statoil's ambition of profitable growth in renewable energy and other low-carbon solutions.
