PETERHEAD, SCOTLAND — 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. According to the Guardian, Statoil, a 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 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 ...

Currently, the only fully operational floating wind turbine in the world is located in Norway and serves as a model for a planned offshore wind farm in Maine. Ironically, engineers borrowed the design from floating oil and gas rigs. ----- Habib Dagher, the Bath Iron Works Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Maine, is the founding director of the AEWC Advanced Structures and Composites Center. Established by the National Science Foundation in 1996, the interdisciplinary AEWC Center is a world leader in the development of cost-effective,...

A wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used to produce electricity. A large wind farm may consist of several hundred individual wind turbines and cover an extended area of hundreds of square miles, but the land between the turbines may be used for agricultural or other purposes. A wind farm can also be located offshore. Many of the largest operational onshore wind farms are located in Germany, China and the United States. For example, the largest wind farm in the world, Gansu Wind Farm in China has a capacity of over 6,000 MW of power in 2012 with a goal of 20,000 MW by 2020. The Muppandal Wind farm in Tamil Nadu, India is the largest onshore wind farm outside of China, with a capacity of 1,500 MW. As of April 2013, the 630 MW London Array in the UK is the largest...

The chance to visit a North Sea oil rig is one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Not just anyone is granted access to these megastructures of the sea and admittance is a strictly guarded privilege. So, when ING Renault F1 Team third driver Romain Grosjean and demonstration driver Adam Khan were offered the chance to spend the day on one of TOTAL's flagship oil platform, they jumped at the opportunity.

As tall as a ten-story building and nearly as large as a football field - offshore converter platforms in the North Sea. Weighing 25,000 tons each, the massive high-voltage direct-current (HVDC) systems help transport power from offshore wind farms to the mainland with minimal loss. The converter platforms that Siemens has built for TenneT can provide clean electricity for about 800,000 households. Find more information at http://www.siemens.com/press/x-win
Each wind turbine is taller than Big Ben and the farm can power 20,000 homes.
