Last weekend Global Wind Service technicians installed the last of the three MHI Vestas V164-8.4MW turbines of the pioneering WindFloat Atlantic project.
Global Wind Service has worked alongside MHI Vestas at the quay side in Ferrol in the northern part of Spain. The turbines were installed from the quay side at Principles Power’s WindFloat, a semi-submersible foundation, and two have since been towed out to their final position approx. 20km off the coast, in the Atlantic Ocean.
Once all three turbines are in their final position and energised, they will provide green energy to approx. 60,000 people.
