The largest floating wind turbine in the world, an 8.4 MW ABS-classed offshore wind turbine is about to be installed. It is the first of three ABS-classed, SEMI Submersible Type units designed by Principle Power housing MHI Vestas turbines that will make up for a total of 25 MWs of floating offshore wind power. This is continental Europe’s first larger scale floating wind farm, 20 kilometers off the coast of Viana do Castello, Portugal.

The project is developed by the Windplus consortium, which is jointly owned by EDP Renováveis, ENGIE, Repsol and Principle Power Inc and is scheduled to go online at the end of 2019. The development is based on the same principles as the original Principle Power designed concept, WindFloat 1, that was installed offshore Portugal in 2011.
