Video of the week: Scotland's floating wind farm rides the waves



In 2017, the world's first floating wind farm was installed by Equinor at the Hywind site, 19km off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland. Five 6MW Hywind floating turbines generated a total capacity of 30MW. 

This video by National Geographic takes a closer look at the Hywind Scotland wind farm and allows you to get a closer look at the size and impressive engineering of these turbines.
