The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) is Scotland’s largest offshore wind test and demonstration facility which is being developed by Vattenfall-owned Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Limited and supported by AREG.
AREG members have an opportunity to find out about Scotland’s largest offshore wind test and demonstration facility, and learn about the innovation associated with it on Thursday (June 1).
• Adam Ezzamel – Project Director
• Kevin Metcalfe – Turbine Package Manager
• Alistair Leighton – Installation Manager
Located in Aberdeen Bay, the innovative 92.4MW 11-turbine offshore wind scheme will trial next generation technology and once operational, boost the industry’s drive to competitive clean power.
Underlining the vision for the more than £300 million EOWDC is the installation of V164-8.4MW turbines paired with suction bucket foundations. An industry first. Construction of the facility, which also includes 66kV cabling, began in October 2016, with first power generating in summer 2018 and operating for 20 years.
The EOWDC has been awarded up to €40million of funding from the European Union.
This free event is open to AREG members. A light lunch will be provided. Should you have any questions or special requirements for the event, please make contact with the events team at firstname.lastname@example.org
