World’s first floating wind farm Hywind officially open
The 30 MW floating farm, operated by Statoil in partnership with Masdar, has started its operation and is now delivering electricity to the Scottish grid. The world’s first floating wind farm will power 20,000 homes, and is leading the way to future wind farm developments.
As stated by Statoil’s EVP Irene Rummelhoff, “Knowing that up to 80% of the offshore wind resources are in deep waters (+60 meters) where traditional bottom fixed installations are not suitable, floating offshore wind is expected to play a significant role in the growth of offshore wind going forward.”
BARDOT Group has supplied the buoyancy modules for Hywind’s power cables, which were provided by Nexans. Each module, rated for 120m of water depth, provides around 400kg of buoyancy. The buoyancy modules integrate BARDOT’s in-house DeepFloat® syntactic foam technology, and provide flotation assistance in the dynamic sections of the power cables.
