World’s First Floating Offshore Wind Farm Celebrates Five Years Of Operation

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on

This is the sub-heading.

Hywind Scotland, the first floating offshore wind farm in the world, has passed five years in operation since its commissioning in 2017.

And this is the first paragraph.

According to Equinor, Hywind Scotland is the world’s best-performing offshore wind farm, achieving a capacity factor of 54 per cent over its five years of operations.


  1. Hywind Scotland is a 30 MW wind farm with five turbines.
  2. The capacity faction is much higher than a windfarm with fixed foundations.
  3. The water depth is between 95 and120 metres.
  4. The wind farm is 30 km. off Peterhead.

There is at least 15 GW of floating wind farms being planned in UK waters before 2030.


The wind farm has made a good start for the first floating wind farm.
