The first turbine from the WindFloat Atlantic project has been successfully towed from Spain to Viana do Castelo in Portugal in what constitutes a world second for floating wind.

That first turbine will be joined in the coming months by two more floating units, which by the end of the year will produce enough to cover the energy needs of 60,000 homes.


This is the second floating wind farm in Europe and the world after the Hywind project was inaugurated off the coast of Scotland in October 2017.
