Hywind: World’s Largest (30MW) Floating Offshore Wind Farm Off the Coast of Peterhead, Scotland

Geschreven op 29-5-2017 - Erik van Erne. Geplaatst in Energie en Besparing Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

1 December 2017: Hywind Scotland, the world’s first floating wind farm, will next year be equipped with a battery to store power from the wind farm.

The purpose is to teach the battery when to hold back and store electricity, and when to send power to the grid, thus increasing value of the power.

Statoil has commissioned energy storage specialist Younicos to deliver a 1MW/1.3MWh battery system to its 30MW Hywind Scotland floating wind project.

This is the first battery storage system connected to a floating wind farm. Named Batwind, the storage solution project is a partnership between Statoil and Masdar, and will be operational by Q2 2018. Younicos will produce two three-metre modular battery containers that will be placed at Hywind Scotland’s onshore substation in Peterhead, Scotland.

19 October 2017: Hywind Scotland, the world’s first and largest floating offshore wind farm has begun producing electricity this week as Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon officially opened the 30 megawatt wind farm.

Located 25 kilometers off the coast of Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, Hywind Scotland is made up of five 6 MW wind turbines which were constructed in Stord, Norway, before being towed to Scottish waters in June. At 30 MW, Hywind Scotland will provide the equivalent amount of electricity as that used by approximately 20,000 Scottish households.

29 May 2017: Scotland’s notoriously strong winds could pan out to be a blessing in disguise after the Scottish government recently approved plans for a floating wind farm right off of the Scottish coast. Statoil, the Norwegian energy company, plans to build a floating wind farm 15 miles off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland by the end of 2017.

The floating wind farm, called the Hywind floating wind farm, will consist of five, 258-meter-high floating 6MW wind turbines. Each will have a floating steel tube filled with ballast as their base and they will be tethered to the seafloor by three moorings.

Each of the five wind turbines will have a six-megawatt capacity, and together they will be able to power an estimated 20,000 homes. Because they’re not actually attached to the seabed, these types of wind turbines are cheaper than traditional ocean turbines and can be placed in deeper waters. Existing offshore wind turbines, which need to stand on concrete or steel foundations, are expensive if anchored to depths greater than 40 meters, reported the Guardian.

Statoil’s goal with this $232 million Hywind pilot project is to demonstrate a way to harness wind power that can increase the global market potential for turbines.

    ScottishPower Looks to Next-Gen Turbines for East Anglia 3 Offshore 1,2GW Wind Farm

    ScottishPower Renewables plans to use larger, next generation wind turbines for its East Anglia 3 offshore wind farm.

    The company received approval to move forward with its 1,200 MW project, which will use 172 wind turbines that have a tip height of 247 meters. ScottishPower did not disclose exactly which turbines it will select for the project.

    East Anglia 1 will consist of up to 102 Siemens wind turbines and foundations, each rated at 7 MW for an overall generating capacity of up to 714 MW.

    East Anglia 3 will be located 69 kilometers off the coast of Norfolk. ScottishPower is currently delivering the East Anglia 1 project, which is due to be operational in 2020. The company is developing four projects in total in the area, with a total capacity of 3,5GW.

    Hywind Floating Wind Farm in Scotland Performed Better Than Expected

    The world’s first floating offshore wind farm has performed better than expected after its initial three months of operation.

    The Hywind project, located 15 miles off the north-east coast of Scotland, consists of five turbines with a maximum capacity of 30 megawatts. Going at full pelt they can power 20,000 homes in the UK. During its first three months of operation the wind farm has generated an average capacity factor of 65 percent, i.e. it reached 65 percent of its maximum output for the whole winter period. By contrast, a typical offshore wind farm has a capacity factor of around 45-50 percent during winter.

    The floating wind farm had to survive brutal conditions in the North Sea with storms bringing wind speeds of up to 100mph and average wave heights of 8.2 meters.
