EOWDC Final Turbine Installed, Cable Set Up Nears Completion

The final turbine for the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) has been installed off Aberdeen Bay in the North Sea.

Adam Ezzamel, EOWDC project director at Vattenfall, said: “This is a magnificent offshore engineering feat for a project that involves industry-first technology and innovative approaches to the design and construction. Throughout construction, the project team and our contractors have encountered, tackled and resolved a number of challenges. The erection of the final turbine is a significant milestone, and with the completion of array cable installation just a few days away, we now move on to the final commissioning phase of the wind farm prior to first power later this summer.
 
MHI Vestas chief operations officer, Flemming Ougaard, added: “We’re excited to see that the last turbine has been safely installed at Aberdeen Bay with our partner, Vattenfall. With clean power set to soon flow to the national grid from all 11 turbines, we very much look forward to operations and service at the new offshore wind park.”

The 93.2MW EOWDC, which is scheduled to generate first power in the summer, will produce the equivalent of more than 70% of Aberdeen’s domestic electricity demand and annually displace 134,128 tonnes of CO2.
