Kincardine confirms first power

30 October 2018

Kincardine Offshore Wind has confirmed the first phase of an up to 50MW floating project off Scotland notched first power late last month.

The company, majority owned by Spanish construction company Cobra, said the Vestas V80 unit atop a Principle Power semi-submersible platform exported electricity on 26 September.

KOW said the milestone is a “watershed moment” for the project, which will feature a further six turbines to be installed over the next two years.

The first phase of the project features the decommissioned WindFloat foundation and turbine (pictured) that was previously deployed off Portugal.

Vekta Group was pleased to support the project during the development phase.
