The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC)

The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) is Scotland’s largest offshore wind test and demonstration facility which has been developed by Vattenfall-owned Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Limited and is supported by AREG.

Located in Aberdeen Bay, the innovative 93.2MW 11-turbine offshore wind scheme is trialling next generation technology and boosting 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. First power started generating in summer 2018 with the project operating for 20 years.
