The last platform of WindFloat Atlantic has been connected to the grid, and the windfarm has been fully commissioned.
The three units are now supplying the Portuguese electrical grid with the energy generated by their 8.4 MW wind turbines, the largest turbines ever installed on a floating platform.
The commissioning of this floating wind farm is a landmark achievement for the sector as floating wind technology contributes to the diversification of energy sources, provides access to untapped marine areas and represent a major technological leap towards a carbon-free economy.
With a total installed capacity of 25 MW, WindFloat Atlantic is the world’s first semi-submersible floating wind farm.
