Vattenfall begins operations of 93-MW offshore wind farm in Scotland

Vattenfall AB on July 1 began commercial operations at the 93.2-MW Aberdeen Bay offshore wind farm in Scotland.

The project deploys what Vattenfall described as wind turbines with the world's largest capacity, consisting of two 8.8-MW turbines and nine 8.4-MW turbines.

The company said a single rotor lap from the 8.8-MW turbine can power a British household for a day.

The project had an investment cost of €350 million, according to Vattenfall.

Aside from generating 312 GWh of electricity every year, the facility will be used to research new offshore wind technology while helping to preserve marine wildlife.
