Natural Power supports construction of European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre
Esther Villoria, Environment and Consents Manager at EOWDC, said: “The support and advice provided by Natural Power on this project has been excellent. The team has provided a highly professional service which has helped us through the successful construction phase of this innovative development.”
Located around 2.4km off the coast of Aberdeenshire in the North Sea, the 93.42W EOWDC consists of 11 of the world’s most powerful MHI Vestas Offshore Wind V164 turbines – two 8.8MW turbines and nine 8.4MW turbines. Paired with three-legged jacket suction bucket foundations, this represents an industry first
The clean electricity generated at the wind farm will be transported to the onshore substation at Blackdog, Aberdeenshire, converting from 66kV to 132kV for transmission to SSE’s Dyce substation, for further transformation to 275kV and connection to the National Grid network.
The EOWDC will:
- Annually produce 312 GWh
- Have an installed capacity of 93.2MW
- Annually displace 134,128tonnes of CO2
- Remove the equivalent of 736,817 cars from UK roads throughout its lifetime
- Produce enough electricity every year to meet the equivalent annual demand of 79,209 homes
- Generate the equivalent of 70% of Aberdeen’s domestic electricity demand and 23% of Aberdeen’s total demand
